Pla de l'Aigua Underground Reservoir

This is the drinking water visitor centre. It is a large-scale tank built in 1784 to provide the city with drinking water, so as to resolve the problems faced by mediaeval Lleida and combat epidemics. It was filled with water from the Pinyana canal, distributed to the population via five monumental fountains: the Ensenyança, the Roser, the Cathedral, the Sant Francesc and the Sant Joan, known popularly as the Mermaids. It is a substantial construction built on 25 stone columns. It can hold 9 million litres of water and is known as the Cathedral of Water.
