Your stay here...
Vigo can be said to be embraced by sea and mountain thank to its special geographical situation. One may practise an enormous variety of sports here (sailing, yacht races and boat competitions, sand sports, racket sports, cycling, trekking, etc.)
Being the main fishing port in the north of Spain, Vigo receives most of the Atlantic coastal and deep-sea fishing. This implies that its numerous restaurants and bars may get, and offer you, highest quality fish and seafood.
You’ll love its landscapes full of green wooded valleys, and its amazing beaches. All along the length of its coastline, bathed by the Cantabrian Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll find areas of spectacular cliffs like those on A Costa da Morte, or the incredible Islas Atlánticas National Park. You’ll marvel at its many monuments such as the Tower of Hercules or Lugo’s city walls.
Galicia’s delicious gastronomy is one of its strong points, and features a variety of typical produce and dishes, including its shellfish, veal, octopus “a feira”, gammon with turnip greens or the almond tart known as “tarta de Santiago”.
And to drink what could be better than two of its most famous wines, Ribeiro and Albariño (which each have their own Wine Route) or the popular “queimada” (alcoholic spirits set alight in an earthenware bowl according to the typical ritual)
