Wikipedia, Feb. 12, 2012 (Lleida (Catalan); Spanish: Lérida; city in the west of Catalonia, Spain, capital city of the province of Lleida. 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, the Ilergetes. The town became a municipality, named Ilerda, under the reign of Augustus. It was reconquered in 1149, after being many centuries under the rule of the Moors, who had conquered the town in the 8th century)
