Guissona

Province: Lleida | Shire: La Segarra | Inhabitants: 7.390 | Extension: 18,1 Km2 | Altitude: 484 m

Guissona's roots lie in the ancient Roman city of Iesso.

From this town founded between the 2nd and 1st centuries BC, you can visit the archaeological complex formed by the Guissona Eduard Camps Museum and the Archaeological Park. Visiting this unique heritage complex in Poniente you will be able to know the development of the Roman civilization in our lands.

During the Middle Ages the historic center of Guissona was built.

The Portal del Ángel, the only preserved old access, invites you to travel back in time and stroll through a network of streets and alleys for pedestrians such as the old Jewish street or the Sant Magí neighborhood. The old town will reveal a series of charming squares and corners where local history becomes palpable.

The opulence and modern religiosity have bequeathed the city some exceptional samples.

This time of contrasts is visible with constructions such as the Obra de Fluvià, an unfinished late-Gothic-Renaissance episcopal palace with monumental complexes such as the city's fountains, the altarpiece of the Virgin of the Cloister and the church of Santa María itself, with a imposing facade of baroque roots.

Between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the city was dressed in an eclectic modernism.

During this time the urbanization of the suburbs took place, and notable buildings in the old town were renovated or rebuilt with the new aesthetic. Sinuous curves, wrought iron railings, contrast in construction materials... characterize public and private constructions of this time.

Human action has shaped the Guissona environment since ancient times.

Margin walls that are lost in time configure paths of a territory shaped by the work of the fields. Walking or cycling you can discover unique buildings and spaces such as the ice well or the Estany fountain. There are many routes traced around this unique cultural landscape.

Celebrations that put Guissona on the map.

Declared a local festival of tourist interest, the Roman Market is held on the third Saturday in July. Accompanied by cultural activities throughout the previous week, on this special date the town and its villagers are transported to their Roman past, at the end of the 1st century BC.

Guissona, at the service of the visitor.

Motorhomes arriving in Guissona can park in the bonÀrea car park on Calle dels Llacs no. 1, where they also have the gas station and the bonÀrea buffet-restaurant.

In addition, on the website of the City Council you can find a list of the shops, companies and services available in the town.
