The Bofarull Palace is a town protected as a cultural asset of local interest, located in Carrer de Llovera in Reus, near the Plaça de Prim (city centre) which belonged to the ennobled family of Bofarull. It is also known as the Olimpo or the "leads", entities that had had their headquarters there The Bofarull were enriched in the EIGHTEENTH century and the 1760Joseph Bofarull and Gavaldà was ennobled by King Carlos III. This Bofarull was the mayor of the city and the noble condition was confirmed by royal concessions of 1772 and 1774, years in which the palace was built, the work of the architect Francesc Bofarull Gavaldà, who was his brother. The most notable part was the noble Hall, dated 1788, which is decorated with paintings by the painter Pere Pau Montaña, with allegories from Carlos III and Carlos IV.
An emblematic building of the city of Reus in which the Diputación de Tarragona, owner of the building, is program cultural events. The space is quite well and allows you to host exhibitions of plastic arts, conferences, small concerts, etc. Some years ago it was restored and currently has a very good appearance. As negative points, it is necessary to emphasize the lack of effective management that, for example, would allow a coherent, ongoing programming and a good diffusion. I ignore if you have an elevator, in any case I have always seen that visitors must overcome a long and wide staircase to access the first floor, where activities are developed.
