    We can not go to Lugo without stepping on its walls, living history that has survived the man for a long time. Great for surround the old city, and see the greatness of Roman engineering.

    After a lunch in the historic center, feel free to survey this wall to make the tour of the city. Install you for a break under the magnolias and enjoy multiple panoramas.

  • Amazing monument more than 2000 years old, built by the Imperium Rome, very well preserved. You can have a walk on its entire perimeter of 2 Km.
  • 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
  • Lugo's Roman wall is an impressive relic of a long gone time, but rather than being a preserved, stale object behind a glass case it is a still living and breathing part of the city. Lizards and birds live and die on its stones and joggers and walkers lap its complete wall walk
  • An outstanding piece of roman engineering
  • Simply one of the most beautiful places in all Spain! You have to visit it! I'm from Italy and is all so actractive
