Create an itinerary including Casa Navas
Casa Navàs is a modernist building in the city of Reus, Catalonia, Spain. Casa Navàs is a building designed by Catalan architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, located in the city's Plaça del Mercadal.

Joaquim Navàs Padró of Reus contracted Lluís Domènech i Muntaner as the architect of his new house. The building was constructed from 1901 to 1908.



The building had a tower on the left facade, but it was destroyed by bombing by Nationalist forces during the Spanish Civil War and never rebuilt. Inside the building is a very wide and brightly lit space. Marble works were done by Alfons Juyol i Bach, the paintings by Tomàs Bergadà, the furniture by Gaspar Homar and the ceramics by Hipòlit Montseny; all of them under the instructions of Lluís Domènech i Montaner.

Nowadays the building is still the same as it was originally (except the tower), and that includes the furniture, the ceramics, mosaics, lights, etc.

  • Casa Navas what was built in the beginning of the 20th century. This is the most important modernist building to visit in Reus, you are not allowed to photograph anything on the inside, but you are allowed to go on the tour. That is exactly what my boyfriend and I did. We bought the tickets in the early afternoon and waited for our time to get in line. It wasn’t a long wait and they had us put on booties over our shoes to protect the floor. We were allowed to photograph the grand entryway, which is what you’re seeing below in parts of the entrance of the house. Keep in mind if you go during the summertime that they do not have air conditioning in this building so you should definitely dress for the condition if it is a hot day. All of this has remained intact from stone, marble, and the stained glass is all original. Part of the building on the left façade was damaged due to a bomb during the Civil War but it is an absolutely incredible that you’re walking into a piece of history that was a very important architectural structure. The tour was fantastic, the staff were very informative of the facts of this building, and answered any questions that we had definitely have a bottle of water with you and take your time enjoying this piece of history.
  • THIS PLACE IS BEAUTIFUL!!!! I couldn’t go inside! I suggest you to book the tickets online for this!! This place has only guided tours so better to book them in advance ! The ticket is for 10€ per person!
