  • It is worth climbing walking through this 18th-century fortress, imagine the wall that surrounded Vigo at some point, and stop to see good views. It is recommended to upload a clear day.

  • I really liked to see what remains of the Celtic ruins, the spaces they created around, in particular of children, families and practitioners of skateboarding. I must also refer to the beautiful polite Graffitti murals. However watch the sunset from the top of the Castle, is the top.

  • Views across the estuary and a beautiful fortress, that is worth visiting. You can climb from the City Council of Vigo.

  • Stunning views. Well worth the walk. A little cafe just south of the summit easily missed if you walk up though north gardens.
  • Nice castle and very nice view from the top. There is also supposed to be a ancient village, but i couldn't find it. It is not well indicated and also the path up the castelo is hard to find.
  • This is the very place where Vigo was first settled. Allow sometime to wander in the gardens and enjoy the view from the different viewpoints. It is also a great running spot, if you don't mind it not being very flat. Located in the very heart of the city, there is no excuse to miss one of the nicest locations in Vigo.
  • Excellent urban park with stunning views, the castle and gardens at the top afford sweeping vistas of all of Vigo and the valley.
  • Beautiful park with nice views of the harbor. Consider coming up with your car as it is a nice steep climb 😊
