  • View of Lugo city walls

Standing on the banks of the River Miño, Lugo boasts impressive traces of its Roman past, most notably the ancient city wall, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.Read more...

What to see Lugo was founded by the Romans and has managed to preserve its entire City Walls that have witnessed over 2,000 years of history. You can still walk along this incredible monument, which stands 12 metres high and stretches for over two kilometres. You can visit the City Wall Interpretation Centre in Praza do Campo square. In the old city centre, you'll find such impressive buildings as the cathedral, the Episcopal Palace and the City Hall. To learn more about the city's Roman heritage, you can visit the Casa de los Mosaicos, the Provincial Museum, the Roman Baths and the Sanctuary of Santa Eulalia de Bóveda. Beyond the city walls, we recommend visiting Rosalía de Castro park, where there is a fabulous viewpoint across the entire Miño river valley. Gastronomy The cobbled streets in Lugo's old city centre are lined with great restaurants serving typical dishes such as ham with turnip tops, local “tetilla” cheese and fresh seafood. All accompanied by some excellent wine from A Ribeira Sacra. Trips If you're missing the sea, be sure to visit the area of Ribadeo and its fabulous beach known as As Catedrais (The Cathedrals). And for nature at its best, take a trip to A Ribeira Sacra or the Terras do Miño Biosphere Reserve.
