  • The Roman walls of Lugo are the best preserved in Spain. This is a unique object. UNESCO has recognized World heritage twice. First initially as Roman walls in 2000, and then included when expanded...  more »
  • A unique monument from the Roman Empire. You can walk (or even run) on the wall and enjoy the views of the surrounding landscape.
  • The wall is about 2km long and is used by locals and tourists alike for recreation and sightseeing. The top of the wall is wide and there are plenty of places to stop, look around, and take pictures. The architecture of the city, both inside and outside, of the wall is fascinating. Keep in mind there isnt much shade when walking on the wall, so put on some sunscreen for the fairer-skinned people on a sunny day.
  • You have to walk around it, see the different entrances to truly appreciate it. Seeing the sun set from up here is something else.
  • Ideal place to walk and run while you visit the center of Lugo.
  • Amazing place, lots of history and great place to walk and sit at the main plaza...
