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.[1]
