The colorful houses by the river, the shocking cathedral and an incredible old town full of live, restaurants, shops... but among anything else: history! arabs and jewish left their amazing footprint in the city.”

“The cinema's museum is a funny place where you can see what the first film shows were like, participate in scientific, cultural and leisure activities and enjoy its ancient collections. Is housed in a building dating from the late nineteenth century, known as the Casa de les Aigües, because it formerly contained the head offices of the city's water company.”

Historic Site
“A 10 minutos a pie del alojamiento. Excelentes vistas de la ciudad y el Pirineo. Actividad gratuita. La ampliación de las murallas romanas en época medieval permite hoy día pasear por el antiguo camino de ronda y recorrer los tramos de muralla carolingia más extensos de Europa (s. IX). Las diversas torres que la jalonan son auténticos miradores privilegiados sobre la ciudad y sus alrededores. Recomiendo recorrerlas al atardecer cuando el color del sol anaranjado ofrece una visión mágica y se pueden hacer muy buenas fotos. Llevar calzado cómodo, tipo zapatillas, y evitar las chanclas, para evitar resbalones con las piedras y las escaleras. ”
