Accomodation and travel

The city

In Lleida you will discover a different way of enjoying yourself doing leisure activities, going to cultural events, shopping and tasting local dishes. Above all, you will find many experiences in Lleida to thrill you.

Lleida is the capital city of Segrià region and the province that takes its name. It is the most important population and economic inland centre in Catalonia. Its economy is based on the agri-food sector, as well as on all kinds of services.

Shopping, with a strong, deeply rooted tradition in the city, spreads its influence over Segrià and neighbouring regions. The newly opened, high-quality cultural facilities, like the new University Campus, have given the city’s cultural life an extraordinary boost. Lleida is a modern city which is culturally active, well communicated and situated in a unique natural environment.

Lleida has the privilege of being provided with natural areas as important as La Mitjana nature park -an ecosystem of great natural and ecological value- the River Segre park and Camps Elisis, apart from the so-called Horta (irrigated area), the green belt that surrounds the city. This natural legacy has made Lleida grow, following environmental and quality values within the framework of a sustainable city.

How to arrive

It boasts modern networks, headed by the Lleida-Alguaire airport, the first commercial airport promoted by the Government of Catalonia, has been conceived and built as the backbone of territorial rebalancing within the Catalan ambit, as one of the Lleida area’s economic drivers and as a connecting axis to the Pyrenees, the high-speed railway line (AVE) and the road network: the AP-2 motorway, which runs as a dual carriageway from the city of Barcelona to Lleida and then on to Zaragoza; the Eix Occidental, which leads to the Ebro, and the Eix Transversal bound for the Girona region.

This position as a crossroads will be soon enhanced by the construction of an airport in the neighbouring town of Alguaire and the Lleida-Huesca dual carriageway.

The city is easily communicated with the rest of the province: the A-230 goes to Val d’Aran and Vall de Boí and the C-1313 goes as far as La Seu d’Urgell and Andorra.
