This architectural piece of art lies on top of a hill above the city of Llleida. It can be seen from miles away and at the top, nothing but views for days. As you walk the grounds you can't help but think of the history here. So much charm and beauty.

Awesomely big cathedral that was used as a barrack after the Spanish succession War. But it still retain the old monastery feel. The cloister is absolutely amazing and is apparently one of the largest in Europe. You can go up to the tower which unfortunately we have to skip as the sight closed at 130pm for lunch and the weather... More

We went there because we have a member of the family living there. It's "compulsory" to go there, as its one of the main things to visit (there are not that many to visit in Lleida). The girl at the reception was really nice and helpful. Information provided about the cultural place it's not that much but it is enough,... More

The Old Cathedral of Lleida stands in a dominant position looking down on the City. The cloisters are magnificent and believed to be the biggest in Europe. Unusually, as well as being open onto a square, one side of the cloister is also open to the outside with views across the City. Parking on the Site is available but do... More

Lleida´s old cathedral is within a fortress complex, which is also worth a wonder. You also have good views of the city from up here. Well worth the visit.

This historic site gives a bit of insight into what it must have been like in old times. Spectacular views of the town from the bell tower which climb is not for the faint hearted. The church is beautiful and there was a wedding ceremony when we visited.

En route to Santuario de Torrecuidad from Barcelona, we checked the map for towns on the way for side trip to make the road trip more interesting. This city and this site in particular was so breathtaking. Worth the side trip for pilgrims driving to Torrecuidad from Barcelona.
