  • We went to Lugo exclusively for the wall and the truth is that we have not left disappointed. We went across the wall by the coastal path and we could see the city from above. One of the best preserved Roman buildings of the Roman Hispania.

  • Visiting Lugo and not take a nice walk by the wall is a mistake. 45 minutes of leisurely, family while watching the city within the walls is a joy. Spectacular State of conservation

  • It is a pleasure to rise and walk above the walls. You can go see the streets squares, houses and courtyards of the surroundings. Also there are areas in ruins, burned and abandoned. There are different bows to exit and enter the wall. People use it as training travel. The tour is highly recommended.

  • Lugo is one of the very few places that keeps complete its original roman walls. 2.8 kilometers that can be peacefully walked over as one sees the rest of the city. Also a perfect place for a run, for those who like it. The size of the wall gives you an idea of how big the roman city must have been
  • Simply one of the most beautiful places in all Spain! You have to visit it! I'm from Italy and is all so actractive
  • Located in center of Lugo. Place is perfect for families and couples to come out in the evening and enjoy the weather. Good food spots and shopping spots are freely available.
  • Well preserved monument and witness of the history of the city. Pleasant walk. Grand Centre with plenty of information in several languages.
