· More than 18,000 people visit Casa Navàs between June and September
· Visitors to the modernist building have not stopped growing since its opening
Casa Navàs in Reus has closed the summer season, exceeding 18,000 visitors for the first time, a figure that marks a new historical record since the modernist building opened its doors to the public in 2018. This increase shows, once again, that interest in this jewel by Lluís Domènech i Montaner is continuing to rise, and that the facility has become one of the main tourist attractions in the territory.
The number of people who want to get to know Casa Navàs up close has not stopped growing. And this is demonstrated by the 18,011 people who have purchased tickets to visit the modernist building between June and September of 2023. This figure, which represents an increase of 2.94% compared to the summer of last year, is valued in a very positive way. “After the high influx that we registered in the first five months of the year, we expected that the summer would be excellent, but we noticed the general decrease in tourists that the area suffered between July and July. Even so, we have managed to finish the season breaking a record,” says Sílvia Sagalà, director of Casa Navàs.
It is interesting to note that, of the group of people who this summer have joined one of the various visits offered by Casa Navàs, 34.7% are international visitors. Most of them, 6,261, 17.07%, came from France, the country that has brought the most foreign visitors to the modernist building for a few years. They are followed, at a great distance, by those of Germany (2.38%), Belgium (1.99%) and the United Kingdom (1.89%).
As for the Catalan visitors, they accounted for 37.44% of the total with 6,744 people. With 2,132 people, Barcelona continues to be the city that brings the most visitors. Next, they are followed, from afar, by visitors from Tarragona, those from Lérida and those from Girona. The public form Reus, for its part, represents 8.8% of the visitors received this summer.
Finally, the remaining 19.1% of visitors come from the rest of the Spanish state, with the Valencian Community, the Community of Madrid and the Basque Country being the regions that have the most interest in this unique modernist building in Europe.
This fall, Casa Navàs continues its activity and opens from Monday to Sunday with different types of guided tours. In addition, it is also immersed in the special programming organized monthly within the framework of the Domènech i Montaner’s Year.
