My decision to go to Lleida was simply random. We boarded the first train out of Barcelona to experience culture and immerse ourselves into Spanish culture. We ended up in Lleida! Lleida is not considered a typical tourist stop, but I found there to be many famous apparel shops, historical sites, and Catalan cuisine that you cant find anywhere else! We explored the La Seu Vella. A cathedral turned mosque turned cathedral again over a100's of years of arguing among great historic leaders. The building is in tact and is a lot of fun to walk through and take breathtaking pictures of the city from the courtyard walls. I definitely recommend Lleida for those who want to escape the busy tourist filled streets of Barcelona!
