Those interested in Gaudi and his unique architecture, will already know that he was born Antoni Gaudi I Cornet, on 25 June 1852 in either Reus city or just outside in a village called Ruidoms.  There appears to be some controversy. The Gaudi Centre in Reus is a new and modern museum dedicated to the inspirational man and well worth a visit before heading up to Barcelona to wonder at his masterpieces.
