A former cathedral turned into a military citadel, Turo Seu Vella can be seen on the hilltop from anywhere in the city. Many of the religious artifacts and artwork have been removed, but the atmosphere is worth experiencing. Climb to the top of its tower for fantastic views, and be sure to check out the cloister open on one side. Take a guide or you may miss a lot of interesting details about the site.

  • Very interesting. Great view. Nice walk from the top to the city center. Remember it is normally closed on Mondays.

  • Stunningly beautiful let down by miserable staff. They would not let us up the belltower even though there was still 50 minutes left (guide says no entry 30 minutes before closing). No re-entering...

  • Excellent cathedral with a lot of interesting features to keep you busy. A bell tower to climb, a lovely cloister, frescoes in situ, lots of sculpture and the general atmosphere to soak up. Amazing really that there's anything much to see considering it was a military base for 300 hundred years. I know a lot more about the war of the Spanish succession now.
  • The Cathedral of St. Mary of la Seu Vella stands out the first minute you arrive in Lleida, strategically located on a hill in the overlooking the whole city center, and offering great 360° views. It was highly regarded by pilgrims that would include it's route and come from all over the peninsula of Spain.
