The Faculty of Business and Economics is situated in Reus, a city of the Tarragona province, and is located in the south of Catalonia, in the northeastern corner of the Iberian Peninsula.
Located right in the centre of the Costa Daurada and at less than one hour from Barcelona, Reus is a typical Catalan city, with the Mediterranean touch, well known for its shopping, modernist heritage and its close relationship to the universal Antoni Gaudí, the architect of the Expiatory temple of the Holy Family in Barcelona.
This medieval city, steeped in almost a thousand years of history, lived its period of splendour as of the 18th Century thanks to the export of spirits. The major modernist buildings were built in Reus at the end of the 19th Century and the beginning of the 20th, making it the most important city in Catalonia after Barcelona. Reus now boasts one of the most outstanding ensembles of modernist buildings in Europe, which you can discover on the “Modernism Route”, which takes in the city's 26 most important buildings of this style.
Well-connected to Europe and the rest of the peninsula, it offers easy access to two airports: one in Reus, just 5 kilometers away, and the other in Barcelona, just 95 kilometers away.
