Introduction

On this private excursion from Santiago de Compostela you will enjoy a full day tour to Roman Lugo and the the Catedrales beach.

No wonder one of the main spots in Galicia is the Playa de las Catedrales. It's a place like no other, formed by the relentless work of the Cantabrian Sea against the cliffs of the Mariña Lucense during thousands of years, which managed to sculpt in the rocks arches, vaults and caves, making it look like a large cathedral in the sea. This precious natural cathedral can only be seen at low tide.

This natural monument is part of the Natura 2000 Network to preserve its authenticity and its fauna and flora .

The grand Roman walls encircling old Lugo are considered the best preserved of their kind in the world and are the number-one reason visitors land here. Within the fortress there are beautifully preserved streets and squares, most of them traffic-free and ideal for a walk, with plenty of interesting things to see. The historic quarter also houses some of the best restaurants in Galicia, where it is possible to sample the excellent fresh meats and fish which have earned Lugo's gastronomy recognized acclaim. Lucus Augusti was a major town of Roman Gallaecia and modern Lugo is a quiet but engaging city, with a good number of other Roman remains besides the walls.

Inside the walls, the city conserves quiet pedestrian streets, wide squares and spacious gardens, where buildings such as the Cathedral, the Archiepiscopal Palace, and the City Hall stand out.
