A guide to the secrets of the olivic city

Vigo is a city open to the Atlantic that combines an urban character with stunning coastal landscapes. The largest city of Galicia also stands out for its warm climate throughout the year, one of the best in Spain.

From an afternoon shopping in the Rúa do Príncipe, two minutes from the Hotel Junquera, to a tapas dinner in the surroundings of the Mercado da Pedra, in Vigo you will find endless plans for all tastes. In addition, near the city centre you can surprise yourself with the best Atlantic landscapes.

Casco Vello

Every visit to Vigo should begin with the historical part, the Casco Vello, a charming area made up of cobblestone streets scattered with popular bars and taverns.

Here is the Cathedral of Santa María and squares such as Pescadores, Constitución or Almeida.

If you like history, you can visit the Castle of San Sebastian and the Castro Fortress that has witnessed the battles with Portugal.

A must-do: take a picture with the famous Dinoseto.

Museums, parks and culture

Do you fancy cultural visits? In Vigo you can immerse yourself in culture by visiting its many museums, such as Marco, Verbum, Museo del Mar or Museo Liste. A little further from the centre is the Quiñones de León Museum, in the Pazo de Castrelos, which has an exhibition of furniture and art samples from the Galician aristocracy since the 18th century. In addition, you can stroll through the gardens of Pazo de Castrelos and see the famous camellias, the quintessential flower of Galicia.

We also recommend you to go to Monte do Castro park to see one of the best panoramic views of the city, over military and medieval sites. On clear days, you can even see the Cíes Islands.

The cultural offer of Vigo also extends to the performing arts, in the A Fundación theatre or the Auditorio do Mar.

Beaches and landscapes

Vigo is an ideal destination for a sun and sand getaway. In the surroundings of the city there are long beaches of crystalline water ideal for bathing. The best known is the beach of Samil, more than a kilometre long and bordered by a pleasant promenade with restaurants, bars and gardens.

The visit to the Cíes Islands by boat, just 14.5 kilometres from Vigo, is also highly recommended. In this small archipelago hides a natural paradise with beaches such as Rodas, which some consider the best in the world, as well as many hiking trails.
