Circular route of the Water Museum of Lleida and the suburb of the Gold Cup
If you come to Lleida you cannot miss the Water Museum. Only then will you understand the link between this land and water, and the human ingenuity that allowed it to be distributed throughout the territory.
And since you are in the Museum, we suggest you go to the suburb of the Copa de Oro, where you can see the miracle that the water and the alluvial land of the river produce.
- Difficulty: Low
- Distance: 5.9 kilometers
- Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
The route starts at the Water Museum, and runs along the Canal de Seròs for approximately 1.5 km until it "bumps" into the Torrente de la Femosa in the last few meters before flowing into the Segre river.
It returns to the north following the river and passing through the Xoperal del Tòfol, and crossing the Fontanet canal. The route returns to the Water Museum following the paths that run through the Copa de Oro area, whose name refers to the fertility of its land.
On your return you can visit the Lleida Water Museum, an exhibition that explains the links between the city and water and the uses that water has been given over time.
