Lleida (Lerida) is a remarkably unattractive town, having borne the brunt of wars and depradations over the centuries, but the town is crowned by the magnificent and unmissable Seu Vella, a cathedral-fortress that has seen many owners over the ages.
There are signs from the town centre which will enable you to drive right up to the entrance (large free parking area), or you can walk if you are fit, or take a strange lift to one side of the complex - but driving there is easy.
7€ is the current cost of the combined ticket, but the Casa del Rey is only one room which has little in it, so if you are feeling economical you can pay 4€ for the cathedral, cloisters and bell tower.
Although there is plenty of concrete about, the town has done a great job at piecing back together what was once a historical marvel. The church is vast, the cloisters stunning, the tower exhausting to climb, and the views from everywhere outstanding (except that there is little to see of interest!).
Don't miss the back side of the church, where there are two splendid porticos (also a bar with terrace and more views), and on the first Tuesday of each month entry is free. There is plenty of information to be had, and, unusually for Spain, notices are in English too.
