“First Christian Cathedral – In the same place stood the early Christian and Visigothic cathedral, which was then used as a mosque in the time of the Moorish occupation and had been built in the year 832. The Counts of Barcelona Ramon Berenguer IV and VI of Urgel Ermengol conquered the city of Lleida to the Saracens in the year 1149, and was Bishop of Ravidats Pere Guillem, transferred from the Diocese of Roda de Isábena, who consecrated as a Christian cathedral mosque under the patronage of Santa María la Antigua, the canonical governed by the rule of St. Augustine.”
