General information and recomendations about the selected destination
Vigo is a good combination of a bay "with which, in many respects, none other in the world can compare" (G. Borrow) and maritime industrial infrastructure (shipyards, canneries, fishing port, etc.) which explains the rapid growth of this city since the end of the 19th Century. Today it is the most populated city of Galicia. It has splendid parks like Guia Municipal Park with incredible views of Vigo´s estuary, museums including the Galician Sea Museum, a zoo and lots of beaches like Samil Beach. It still has the small old sailing quarter of O Berbés. Castrelos Park, surely the most beautiful municipal park in all Galicia and home to the Quiñones de León Manor Museum, now the city museum with its impressive paintings.
The city of Vigo began its modern development from the last decades of the 19th-century onwards. However, this has not prevented it from being a historic, monumental city. The Celtic Castro which was the city´s origin, Galicia´s largest Roman necropolis, the Romanesque temples, O Castro´s mediaeval fortress... The Neo-classical Collegiate of Santa María and the urban centre with its harmonious combination of quiet streets and broad avenues including the elegant square´s Plaza Compostela and Plaza de la Constitución, all deserve a mention.
Not to be missed are the splendid views over the ria (estuary) and the nearby Cíes Islands, that can be seen from the viewpoints at O Castro, the A Guía and the A Madroa.
