Discover Lerida with a rent a car from Hispacar
The province of Lerida belongs to the autonomous region of Catalonia in northern Spain.
Many European tourists from France, Germany or the Netherlands arrive in their own vehicle. When arriving by plane, you can rent a car at Barcelona or Gerona airport where the major car rental companies offer a wide range of vehicles. However, before you complete a car hire reservation, you should compare prices with rental terms and conditions thoroughly to avoid unpleasant surprises on arrival when you collect your hire car.
Culture and art lovers will not only enjoy Lerida, the capital of the province of the same name. Many interesting sites of great historical significance which are easy to visit with a rental car reflect the region's rich cultural heritage and make Lerida a paradise for history and architecture lovers. Also worth to mention is Lerida’s famous gastronomic snail festival. The city has a long history. Its foundation took place in the sixth century BC and over the centuries all kinds of civilizations have left their traces: Christians, Muslims, Jews, Romans, Iberians etc. Several times, the town was severely damaged or completely destroyed, most recently during the Spanish Civil War.
The medieval cathedral Seu Vella has been built close to an Arab mosque on a hill overlooking the town. The construction of this immense building took over 200 years to be completed. La Paeria is another historical building which probably dates back to Roman times. Today, it is the seat of the municipal administration and certainly the most famous monument of the city. If you hire a car in Lerida it is best to leave it in a public car park.

The museum, which is located opposite the church of San Lorenzo, tourists can visit a valuable archaeological exhibition. Those interested in architecture will feel at ease in Lerida. Close to the Plaza Sant Francesc, several different architectural styles can be admired, for example buildings in the Catalan modernism or neo-classical style. Car hire is not raally necessary to visit these monuments.
Lerida's surroundings, especially the area of the Spanish Pyrenees, hide some beautiful spots, very attractive for nature lovers, to be explored with a rental car. The marvelous park la Mitjana lies close to the town; the calcareous mountains of the Serra del Mont sec in the Pre-Pyrenees are ideal for hiking. The Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park is a fantastic green site with small lakes and many different types of vegetation. Car hire in Lerida is highly recommended to discover these fine places.
With a rental car you can make many interesting day trips to different destinations, including the principality of Andorra, the cathedral of La Seu d'Urgell or the walled town of Solsona, located in the Segre valley, in the foothills of the Pyrenees in the eastern part of the province. Winter sports enthusiasts who visit Lerida should spend some days in the extensive ski area of Aran Valley. Do not forget to ask for winter tires or snow chains at the car rental counter; snow tires are not mandatory when you book car hire in Lerida, but during the winter months, some roads may be passable with snow chains only so it maybe a good idea to ask the car hire company about it.
