  • 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.
