About Lleida

While most people’s minds go to Barcelona when talking about Catalonia, the true heart of the region is the historic city of Lleida. Sitting beneath the colossal shadow of the Turo Sou Vella Cathedral, the city is a living museum where every corner features some small piece of Catalonian history. Typical for the region, the city is also a fantastic cultural hub, with a superb selection of art galleries and festivals.

Weather is standard for northern Spain, peaking around 31°C in the summer and rarely freezing in the winter. While you’ll have to travel around 100km to get to the closest beach, the city boasts many picturesque parks that offer spectacular days in the sun. With such an incredible combination of history, culture and climate, Lleida is a hidden gem and a fantastic holiday destination.

You’ll be spoilt with a mouth-watering selection of delicacies, making tapas a natural choice. Be sure to order the region’s speciality dish pa amb tomaquet, toasted bread and tomato, which often comes with Botifarra, a type of sausage flavoured in a similar way to Cumberland. If you have more of a sweet tooth, look out for crema Catalana which like French crème Brulee but with a strong cinnamon flavour.

Events in Lleida

Lleida mostly plays host to the same Catalonian festivals that you’d expect to find in Barcelona however, the city has a few unique holidays that you should experience if you get the chance. 

Aplec del Caragol

If you get the chance to experience this unique food festival be on the lookout for the many weird and wonderful flavours that street sellers use to stand out from the crowd.
