Almenar is a historic town in the province of Lleida where you can enjoy one of the scenes of the War of Succession, ended in 714, several archaeological sites, an ice well, a mill and various routes for unique landscapes, since Almenar, in the eastern sector, belongs to the Segrianenc plain, while in the western part, the landscape is more rugged with hills such as the Metxut tossal. Staying in a holiday cottage in Almenar is an almost mandatory stop on your Ponent route.

Historical quotes and curiosities from Almenar

The town began its history in the Moorish period , although both Iberian and Romanesque remains had already been found there. Almenar came under the jurisdiction of the prior of Santa Maria de Solsona after the territory was conquered by Ermengol VI count of Urgell and was repopulated with Solsonés families and some from Balaguer , who were attracted there by the lands that the count delivered them.

Also, it has been known that Almenar had a Jewish aljama , which made the reconquest by the Christians more difficult. It wasn't until the 15th century, with the Catholic Kings, that the territory passed completely into Christian hands, after having been in Muslim hands several times.

Discover Almenar from your holiday cottage

The most emblematic architectural element of the municipality is the parish church of Santa Maria . The original building is of Gothic style, but it was renovated in Neoclassical style during the s. XVIII, when the imposing bell tower of 60 meters was added. Other historic buildings are the Casa de la Vila , with an interesting neoclassical facade, and the chapel of Sant Sebastià , from the 18th century.

Next to the church is Casa Jan , now an ethnographic museum with everyday objects from other eras and on Carrer Major, the Casa Tonot Museum.

In the municipality, archaeological sites from the Bronze and Iron Ages have been discovered (the Metxut ossuary, the hill of Sant Salvador ), the field of urns from the Tudela site and the Roman villas of the Sot plateau and the bridge by Ferrando

What can you do in Almenar?

Without a doubt, we suggest you go into the natural setting of the Segre-Noguera Pallaresa wetland , an oasis of vegetation in the middle of the most arid environment you can imagine. This area is part of the Natura 2000 network and is ideal for hiking, hunting and fishing .

In the vicinity of the town, there is the possibility of following several routes such as the one that leads to the Unilla pit or the one that follows the Canal de Pinyana , passing by the flour mill (16th century) and the ice well , located near the Munya bridge. On the other hand, the Camí del Riu is a wonderful route that runs along the edge of Noguera Pallaresa for 10 km.
