There was a party going on!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Well, we really enjoyed our visit although we did not go inside. We had decided to visit Lleida on our way home from the coast but after I had made the booking, I was unsure that there would be much activity in the city on a Sunday. It was a lovely day, the last Sunday in October and we decided to go up to the church. From the square there are steps, but also a lift and an escalator that can be taken half way up and then there is another lift which goes almost all the way to the top. The views were stunning and we found that there was a fiesta in progress. There was a classic car rally, a group of drummers, line dancing, people dressed up in old uniforms, archery, stalls selling local produce etc. It was great. We had our dog with us so could coy go inside so we will leave that for another visit. I had read reviews saying that it was a crumbling edifice, but we found it interesting and beautiful. There is a nice cafe near the top with views over the river and the prices are less that you would expect. Well worth the visit and I hope to come back again.

Misterious to me
Aug 2019
A little creepy. As much as the story of Sant Lororenc. Not a great church comparing to others in this class but ok for a quick visit, there are not many other things to see in Lleida beside the castle. I get this is very old, but there are other old things in better shape than this.
Still ok to see it though.

Small but impressive church

Out side is nice but I also like the inside as well. You almost get the feeling that you are in a cave; dark and mysterious.

Beautiful and atmospheric

St. Llorenc, one of the prettiest corners of Spain, is dominated by this handsome church. I'm no church expert, but the design is distinctive and satisfying. A great place to stay or just a daytrip.

Ancient, well-worn, and still in use. Fantastic interior that shows age and great talent in a restful space.

Pleasant church roud Lleida
Aug 2016 • Couples
Part of our little wander took us to this pleasant church with a splendid tower. Amazing how these tings still stand when they were (more than once) in the middle of significant battlefields.

Fantastic romanesque church
May 2016 • Friends
This church is truly beautiful. You can feel the centuries in here. Well worth a visit. What you may not see without using the coin operated lights is those massive stone altar pieces are all richly coloured in their original colourings . A small but richly decorated church. The museum is also well worth a visit for its romanesque collection. Turn right out of the church door, turn right, walk down and around the church and the very modern building opposite the steps to the main door of the church is the museum.

Beautiful church
Mar 2015 • Family
Ideal church for lots of couples who want to marry. It is traditionally the favourite place for these celebrations. It also offers concerts of classical and religious music from time to time. Legend has it that outside the building and on one of the walls you can see a grill where Saint Lawrence (that's the name of the church in English) was burned to death. We, Lleidatans, tend to believe it but...
