Lleida capital city

Despite its many charms and attractions, Lleida (el Segrià – Spain) remains a relatively unknown city. Visitors interested in history and art are sure to find an interesting variety of buildings that show how different cultures have left their mark on the city. These include Roman and Medieval ruins and much more recent constructions, such as La PaeriaEl Palau de la Diputació. Other interesting structures include numerous Catalan Modernist (Art Nouveau) buildingsthe new Enric Granados Municipal Auditorium and the old cathedral (known locally as La Seu Vella). La Seu Vella is an exceptional Romanesque-Gothic style building that towers over the city from its position on top of the hill of the same name and the Templar Castle of Gardeny

There are also a number of interesting parks: La Mitjana an area of parkland running along the banks of the river Segre, which offers various leisure facilities, the romantic Camps Elisis park... The irrigated area around the city also offers pleasant rural settings that are simply ideal for bicycle rides. 

Those who like to have fun and enjoy a good time will not be disappointed in Lleida, as this is a lively city both during the day and at night and one that offers an interesting range of traditional festivals and celebrations. Important local events include: Les Festes de Maig,or May festival; the Moros i Cristians, festival, in which battles between Moors and Christians are re-enacted; the Fira de Titelles, a puppet festival; the one and only Aplec del Caragol, which attracts thousands of local people and visitors who share an interest in eating snails and partying; and the Festes de Tardor, or Autumn Festival, which has a more cultural focus. Neither should we forget a number of other important festivities, including Carnival, Easter and La Processió dels Fanalets de Sant Jaume (a lantern procession).

It is impossible to complete this summary without mentioning the Monumental Route, the many museums in the city: the Jaume Morera Art Museum and Diocese and Local District Museum of Lleida. The amount of drama and cinema on offer of the city is quite remarkable, with the Mostra de Cinema Llatinoamericà de Lleida, which is usually held in January, Lleida puppet Theatre Festival, Conference and Congress of Lleida - La Llotja providing a good example of what is available. 

On the subject of reasons for visiting Lleida (el Segrià – Spain), visitors are also reminded of the city’s many interesting and attractive shops.

  • The Auditori Municipal Enric Granados (Municipal Auditorium), which was officially inaugurated on 14th February, 1995, was created in order to promote music and music-related culture and to thereby satisfy one of the cultural needs of the city (Lleida - El Segrià - Spain). Its programme offers a basic season of events, a season of concerts that includes performances of a wide range of musical genres by both national and international performers, choral cycles, a season by the Julià Carbonell Orchestra of the Lands of Lleida, a season by the Banda Municipal (Municipal Orchestra), and traditional local concerts and opera sessions.  These modern facilities, which are the seat of the Municipal Music Conservatory, include the symphony hall (hall 1) with its almost perfect acoustics, the chamber hall (hall 2), a library of sound recordings and a large room exhibiting the archaeological remains that were found on the site when the building was being constructed.
