When someone approaches Lleida by any of its access roads, the first thing they see is the Seu Vella, on top of the hill, the higher of the two that characterize the city's skyline.

The other hill, Gardeny, is an important part of the Lleida's history.

Both hills, together with the river Segre, frame the old city, built around the hill of La Seu, walled until the middle of the 19th century.


The route consists of a visit to two attractions:

  • La Seu Vella, the most outstanding building in the monumental complex, and the monument with which, without a doubt, the city of Lleida is identified. 
  • The Templar Castle of Gardeny, one of the most outstanding witnesses of the Templar architecture built in Catalonia during the second half of the twelfth century. (*)

(*) The visit includes a screening of an audiovisual about the origins of the Templar communities, the rules that governed them and the particularities of the Templar House of Gardeny.

  • You need your own bus / vehicle to get from one hill to another.
  • Duration of the guided tour: 3 hours
  • Meeting point: Porta del Lleó (Seu Vella) or Castell Templer de Gardeny
  • The entrance to the Seu Vella is not included in the guide service. Free admission on the first Tuesday of the month. Closed on Monday. Check rates 
  • Free entrance to the Templar Castle of Gardeny
