    La panera

    by Peret Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "La Panera" was an old breath factory, in the middle ages, that today has becomed a modern art museum. Nice space and nice expositions.
    "La panera" va ser un vell forn a l'edat mitjana. Avui ha estat reconvertit en museu d'art contemporani. El marc és força maco, i les exposicions valen la pena.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Comunidade Autonoma de Catalunha (ESPAÑA): Lérida (em catalão, Lleida) fica situada a 155 km a oeste da cidade de Barcelona. A capital da província, Lérida, é dominada pela imponente catedral, a Seu Vella, construída em 1203 dentro das muralhas de um forte conquistado aos mouros em 1149.

    Esta é a unica província interior da Catalunha que oferece deslumbrantes cenários de montanhas, vales embelezados por lagos e cumes imponentes, aldeias pitorescas, vilas antigas e cidades ricas em carácter e em monumentos (exitem 50 fortificações).

    A fortaleza de La Suda encontra-se no ponto mais alto da cidade de Lérida.

    O Castelo de La Suda tem as suas origens num primitivo recinto fortificado e que os Árabes construiram com materiais romanos, na tentiva de reforçar o Califato de Córdoba no séc. IX. Com Ramón Berenguer IV o monte de la Suda tranformou-se num castelo, palácio e catedral. Até Pedro IV o Ceremonioso la Suda ostentou uma grande influência que entrou em decadência nas épocas posteriores. As suas funções foram muito variadas, desde edificio defensivo a prisão na época de Felipe IV. Ao largo do tempo sofreu numerosas destruições ocasionados pelas distintas guerras.

    Traditionally, the majors of Lleida have been called "Paers", a specyal name. So, the town hall is called "Paeria". Is a beautiful building, teh only important in catalonia, in civil romanic.
    Tradicionalment als batlles de lleida se'ls ha anomenat "paers". L'ajuntament de la ciutat, doncs, es diu "Paeria". És un edifici força maco, exemple únic de romànic civil a Catalunya.

    As a student of the University of Lleida I have visited the majority of the nightclubs in the city and I can asure I have never seen clubs like that in other places, neither in Ibiza. Sometimes I have asked myself which is the reason these clubs are so big, and I can only get to the conclusion that it's due to Lleida's geographic location, between Madrid and Barcelona, which are connected by the A-2, the busiest road in Spain.

    And not only are these clubs the biggest ones in Spain, but also the ones that host the performances of the best European deejays. For example, in this 2012, I've seen the performances of Mike Candys and Evelin, Deepside Deejays and Dj Luxury in Wonder Lleida Club; also, Mohombi, Dj Buxxi and Tom Boxer in Excess Lleida; and Juan Magan and Sak Noel in Larida; all them world class deejays for a ticket price of about 20€.

    Dress Code: Just casual.

    With regard to the first question I can tell you Lleida is one of the best cities for walking around, as the streets are well signed, wide and safe for pedestrians. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for biking, as apart from the areas where transit is forbidden like in the Old Town, it's very risky as drivers are not used to cope with bikes on the road. Hopefully this situation will change in the times to come with this crisis making us take the bike more often.

    La Seu vella

    Favorite thing: Without doubt, the most important symbol of Lleida is "la Seu Vella". This is "the Old Episcopal Church" in catalan. It has a very special belfry, big, over the hill. This belfry is a mix of styles: romanic and gothic, in octogonal form. It gives to the city an incofusible and lovely skyline, the first that you see and that you keep in mind when you think in this city.
    Sense dubte, el símbol més important de Lleida és la "Seu Vella". El seu especial campanar és una bareja de l'estil romànic i l'estil gòtic, gaudint d'una original forma octogonal. Ell és qui dóna a la ciutat una inconfusible i preciós "skyline", el primer que es veu quan un arriba, i el primer que es recorda quan un hi pensa.
