Lleida, Lerida, or in English, is a city in western Catalonia, Spain, the capital of the province of Lleida. Geographically it is located in the Catalan Central Depression. The metro area has about 250,000 inhabitants. It is also the capital of the comarca Segriá, as well as the largest city in the province. It had 137,387 inhabitants as of 2010, including the adjacent municipalities Raimat and Sucs.
Lleida is one of the oldest towns in Catalonia, with recorded settlements dating back to the Bronze Age period. Until the Roman conquest of the Iberian Peninsula, the area served as a settlement for an Iberian people, ilergeta. The city became a municipality, called Ilerda, under the reign of Augustus. It was recaptured in 1149, after being many centuries under the rule of the Moors, who had conquered the city in the 8th century. In 1297 the University of Lleida was founded, becoming the third oldest in the whole of Spain. Over the following centuries the city was destroyed by wars. Since then the city has been in a constant urban, commercial and demographic growth.
