Palau is a village in Lleida that was conquered and fortified by the Counts of Urgell, which is why the municipality was given this name. It was a territory belonging to the priory of Santa Maria de Meià since the 12th century, but it is believed to have remained under the control of the Barony of Rialb for geographical reasons.
Like the other municipalities in the area that we have been recommending, it is a small village with no more than 12 inhabitants. Venture to discover all the corners of the place, because despite its small size, each one of them explains a large part of the history of Lleida.

Places of interest in Palau and surroundings
We are convinced that if you decide to visit this town you will not be disappointed. Below you will find a list of the most popular places in the village, and also the ones that most aroused our interest.
- Church of Santa Maria de Palau: this is a Romanesque church from the 11th century. It is still very well preserved today (as are the apses, since the barrel vault has collapsed), so ceremonies can be held here a few times a year.
- L’Oratori: this is a Christian building behind the church that is very popular among the residents of the Baronia.
- Chapel of Sant Joan de Perdiguers: a 17th century construction.
- Heretat de Guàrdia: currently a rural house. It was once a Catalan farmhouse (15th century) with a private chapel dedicated to Sant Josep. There was also the village watchtower.
- The building of the old village school. Nowadays, it is a rural house, but it is worth admiring the building from the outside.
