Lugo is an ancient city surrounded by towering defensive walls. There are beautiful cathedrals and churches to admire, as well as fascinating Roman ruins. Alongside evocative historic sites, Lugo boasts some of the best tapas bars in Spain and is a paradise for food and wine lovers.
Lugo’s ancient Roman walls were built in the 3rd century CE and are some of the best preserved in the world. They’re a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site and stretch for 2.2 kilometres around the city. It’s possible to walk the entire length of the flat-topped walls, with the path taking you past more than 80 towers.
Strolling around the maze of streets, alleys and squares is one of the best ways to enjoy Lugo. Much of the old town is pedestrianised, making it easy to explore on foot. Browse the colourful boutiques and enjoy coffee and cake at an al fresco café.
Catedral de Santa María towers over the city and combines a mishmash of architectural styles, including Romanesque, Neoclassical and Baroque. Light streams into the cathedral through multi-coloured stained-glass windows. Guided tours unlock access to the towers, where you can enjoy sweeping views over the rooftops.
Foodies flock to Lugo to enjoy the flourishing tapas and wine scene. The city is peppered with bars where you can enjoy complimentary bite-sized snacks with your drinks. Try local specialties like “costillas de cerdo” woodfired pork, “pulpo” grilled octopus and “bollos preñados” pastries stuffed with chorizo. Some of the best tapas bars are strung along Rúa Nova, Rúa da Milagrosa and around Plaza do Campo.
Lugo is pedestrian-friendly and easy to get around on foot. The city is a 1.5-hour drive from Santiago de Compostela, the Galicia state capital. Overnight sleeper trains run to Madrid and Barcelona. Santiago de Compostela Airport is a 1.5-hour drive away.
