Owner description: In 1898 building work began on the Pere Mata psychiatric institute, one of the great projects of the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. The building marked the beginning of the brilliant Catalan modernist era in the city of Reus. After its completion, Domènech went on to design other buildings here and the spirit of Catalan modernism spread vigorously throughout the whole city.

“Modernism art out of Barcelona”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

Institut Pere Mata is a modernist building build by Lluís Domènech i Muntaner, one of the apprentices from the great architect Antoni Gaudí. In fact, Domènech i Muntaner is the same architect of Palau de la Música in Barcelona ('Music Palace'). In the outskirts of the city of Reus he build this psychiatric. The pavilion number 6 is the only one that allows visits. Domènech i Muntaner also has another jewell in the middle of the city named Casa Navàs. Both very well preserved places are a step back to the late 19th century. As far as I know, the Tourist office of Reus organises regular visits into these emblematic buildings.
