The unmistakable silhouette of Cervera

* The author is part of the community of readers of La Vanguardia

In these panoramic photographs for La Vanguardia's Readers' Photos perhaps we should not look at the sky, but at the city of Cervera, with its unmistakable church and wall.

Cervera is the capital of the Lleida region of La Segarra, whose origins date back to the 11th century, when three peasant families decided to inhabit this unpopulated area.

Today, Cervera is characterized by the richness of its cultural and monumental heritage. Not in vain up to 11 monuments in the municipality are classified as Cultural Assets of National Interest.

But, its natural environment also invites you to enjoy contact with the landscape, as can be seen in these photographs captured from perspective.

Yes, the city is worth visiting. Among its attractions are the castle (XI century), the church of Sant Pere el Gros (XI century), the walled enclosure (XVI century), the parish of Santa Maria (XIV-XV centuries), the Paeria building (XIV centuries XVII-XVIII), the University (18th century), the historical center, the Union (20th century) and the castles of the aggregated centers of Castellnou d'Oluges, Prenyanosa and Malgrat.
