Introduction

Discover with us Lugo,  Lugo is the only city in the world to be surrounded by completely intact Roman walls, which reach a height of 10 to 15 metres (33 to 49 feet) along a 2,117-metre (6,946 ft) circuit ringed with 71 towers. The walk along the top is continuous round the circuit, and features ten gates. These 3rd century walls are protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The bridge over the Minho is essentially of Roman date, though many repairs over the centuries have effaced its Roman character. It is along the Camino Primitivo path of the Camino de Santiago. The town lies on a hill surrounded by the rivers Minho, Rato and Chanca. 

The Campo Square and adjoining streets are a legendary area for wine bars in all of Galicia. It is very enjoyable to visit the bars before lunchtime and dinnertime, thanks to the different tapas offered with each drink, included in the price, and the excellent quality of the wines, especially those from the nearby area of the Ribeira Sacra.

These same streets also contain some of the most famous restaurants in the city. But this is not the only area of the city with quality wine bars and restaurants, as in the districts of Recatelo (near to the Rosalía de Castro park), Milagrosa (to the north of the city) and Campo Castelo (behind the Town Hall), there are other excellent options to choose from.
