Lugo

Vista do Balneario

The city of Lugo, with more than two thousand years of history, is characterised by its combination of urban and rural landscapes. It is located on the banks of the river Miño, in the heart of the "Tierras del Miño" Biosphere Reserve. Located in a key point of Galicia's geography, from here you can visit places as diverse and paradisiacal as the Ribeira Sacra, the Mariña Lucense, or the mountain ranges of Os Ancares, O Courel, and O Cebreiro

The heart of Lugo, the ancient Lucus Augusti, is surrounded by its spectacular Roman Wall (3rd> century), declared a World Heritage Site. This fortification that stretches more than two kilometres is the only one in the world of Roman origin that has been conserved in its entirety, with a walkway along its entire length. After walking along the wall, visitors can enter through the Puerta de Santiago into the Romanesque cathedral, dedicated to Santa María under the patronage of the Virgen de los Ojos Grandes (Virgin of the Big Eyes). The cathedral of Lugo has the papal privilege of permanent exhibition of the Blessed Sacrament. The squares, streets and buildings in the historical centre will captivate tourists and travellers, as well as the hospitality of its inhabitants

When the Romans arrived in the area of the river Miño, they were attracted by the healing properties of the hot water fountain that flowed on the left bank of the river. Since it was founded, the city has had a medicinal thermal complex that was built over the natural spring. The remains that we can admire today constitute one of the few Roman thermal complexes that are conserved in Spain, date from the 1st century BC, are located in the spa itself, and were declared an Element of Cultural Interest in 1931.

Lugo has a privileged natural environment, ideal for hiking and cycling. It has 24 km of signposted paths along the banks of the river Miño. These routes cross through areas of great natural, historical and cultural value.

Another possible route through the city is to enjoy its tasty tapas and pinchos. Typical portions include squid in their ink, mushrooms in garlic, roasted pork, pig's ear, or octopus. In the local marketplace you can buy a variety of typical products from Lugo's gastronomy.

San Froilán, which is celebrated between 4 and 12 October, has been declared a Festival of National Tourist Interest. This is a very popular celebration, where tradition and modernity are combined. Today the festival stands out for its gastronomy, and the whole of Galicia comes to Lugo around this time to taste the famous Galician-style octopus (pulpo á feira) prepared in the stalls.
