acesa signs a collaboration agreement with Lleida Municipal Council and Turisme de Lleida for the restoration of the Castell dels Templaris (“Castle of the Knights Templar”)
Rehabilitation of the Gardeny Historical Monument
Lleida Municipal Council, Turisme de Lleida (the Lleida Tourist Board) and motorway operator acesa have today signed an agreement for the sponsoring of the restoration of the Castell dels Templaris, on the Gardeny hill. With the signing of this agreement, acesa will collaborate with the Council to make the castle visitable and to install in it a Templar culture interpretation centre.
This step forms part of the Gardeny Historical Monument restoration project being carried out by Lleida Municipal Council through Turisme de Lleida, which will help make the Castell dels Templaris the gateway to the so-called Ruta del Temple (“Route of the Temple”) of the former Crown of Aragon.
The agreement’s signing ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Lleida, Àngel Ros, the President of Turisme de Lleida, Montserrat Bergés, and acesa Director General Lluís Serra.
