Boca de la Mina Route
The walk of the Boca de la Mina is closely linked to the festive calendar of the city and the traditional customs of family leisure and party. Going on a hike, eating the monkey at Easter, seeing the sun rise in San Juan or on designated holidays is part of the collective memory of the people of Reus. It was also customary to go to the source of the Lion, formerly known as the Priests, and the Bassa Nova.
The walk, starting at Ancha street, was built in the s. XIX following the existing path. At the end of that same century, the construction of the train station diverted the route and later the urbanization of the surroundings has cut the extension.
The Route of the Walk of the Mouth of the Mine in Reus, is an itinerary of 4.57 km with a difference of 37 m of ascent and 37 m of descent. It is a circular route that runs through the Boca de la Mina and the Pere Mata Institute, and in which you can see other modernist elements, characteristic of Gaudí, such as the smoke chimneys of the Mill of Sanromà.
The route will start at the beginning of the Paseo de la Boca de la Mina where the route will be approximately 1.26 km until you reach the Barranco de la Mina Street, where we will turn off towards the Pere Mata Institute, taking a walk around the site to appreciate the style that reflects. Next, we will leave the enclosure towards the Road of the Pere Mata Institute where we will walk about 500 meters until we reach the intersection with the Camino de la Cantera del Còbic. This will be the last road we will visit, where in approximately 2 km we will finish the route, returning to the starting point.
Being a route of a low distance and a requirement of low physical level can be considered as an easy route, suitable for the whole family and for all ages.
