  • You can walk around the whole city! See the crumbling walls, the back yards, the restored buildings, the playgrounds, the structures of the city. It is fascinating!  more »
  • The wall has stood for a very long time. We took a tour then a walk on the wall (2.2km) to make the full loop. Do it early if it is a sunny day because it can get a little warm up there with no cover ...  more »

  • 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
