Straddling the Segre River in Catalonia, Lleida is home to towering cathedrals, interesting museums and impressive architecture, all crying out to be investigated. A great way to see it all is by a City Sightseeing bus that lets you admire the key landmarks at your own pace.
Board the tram at any of the five stops to begin your tour. Admire the views, and learn about the history of each sight from the audio commentary, as you weave through the stone streets.
Hop off at Lleida’s Cathedral of La Seu Vella, the beautiful church-turned-citadel that towers over the city from a hilltop. Stop at its 18th-century replacement, Seu Nova Cathedral, and visit Lleida Museum, where prehistoric, Roman, Islamic and Renaissance treasures chronicle the city’s history in modern halls. Other must-sees include the Centre of Contemporary Art La Panera with its cutting-edge modern art, and the Rambla de Ferran, a tree-lined avenue flanked by elegant mansions and modernist buildings.
Your City Sightseeing pass gives unlimited travel on the tram for a full 24 hours. See below for route details.Lleida Hop-On Hop-Off Tour Stops: (30-minute full-loop duration)
