New Cathedral of Lleida
The New Cathedral of Lleida (Catalan Catedral Nova de Lleida) or Seu Nova is the seat of the Bishop of Lleida.
The current cathedral replaced the earlier cathedral, La Seu Vella, Lleida located in the highest point in town, and for a time used as a garrison. The church was constructed in an early Neoclassical-style in using designs by Pedro Martín Cermeño and construction directed by Francisco Sabatini. The austere building was built with local gray stone, but with a coat of arms of the ruling House of Borbón. It has two flanking bell tower-towers, joined by a terrace with a balustrade.
