Wandering through Lleida
Sep 2020
A very modern city, not particularly appealing with mainly multi storey buildings, poor quarters and many wanderers. In the middle of the darkness some light with the castle and old cathedral perched on a hill overlooking the whole plains. Beautiful view and walk.

Great guided tour

The tour was in castellano but I think they do tours in English during summer. The guide was very knowledgeable. The cathedral is undergoing extensive renovations do part of it were out of bounds. However the tour was still interesting to those who knows he to get to know a little bit of the history of the places they are visiting

If you go to Lleida you just HAVE to go. Wonderful view. They made a great job in restoring this fascinating place. Unfortunately it was closed for visiting the buildings but it was impressive anyways!

Find the lift, rather than walk here!

Worth finding your way here; if nothing else, the views are excellent. Interesting old cathedral remains, having been devastated in 1709, with a complex subsequent history; including being used as a barracks for a while. An audio visual display of parts of the history was quite interesting.

Well worth the wait.

We had seen the Seu Vella from a distance some 16 years ago when we took a wrong turning on our way from Barcelona to Montblanc in the days before SatNav! We had promised ourselves a visit at some stage. We were not disappointed. The Seu Vella is a magnificent piece of historic architecture - and no tourist ripoff - though the old Royal place on the site was slightly underwhelming.

I picked Lleida for this, I didn’t just get there by accident. I must admit it looks better in the pictures, the closer you get the more flaws you find.

The buildings are in very bad shape. They should spend some European funds on it, after all this is a very important historical monument.

The most I liked is the tower and the cloister. The rest, like I said, it needs a lot of renovation. If you go to Lleida you must see it, this is the best they have.

It was 40 degrees C today but it didn't stop us making our way up the hill using the elevator accessed off main street.
We even climbed the 238 stairs for superb views over Lleida from the top of the bell tower.
The cathedral itself is a fascinating place. Still standing and looking good but the ravages of so many wars, battles and misuse have made there mark. Part of the fascination of the place though.

Easy access to get to

The place seemed shut down so there was a lot of walking but was not able to visit inside any buildings. The views were amazing. There appeared to be assisted travel but although we saw the little train there was no indication of how to board it.
