Balaguer
The Essential
Capital of the comarca of Noguera, Balaguer is situated on both banks of the Segre. This dynamic and enterprising town still has some sections of its Moorish walls and a maze of medieval streets. It was the birthplace of Gaspar de Portolà, an 18C soldier and explorer. In June, the Festa del Transsegre (a festival celebrated throughout the Segre), a competition for home-made rafts, is held on the river.
