The Roman Walls of Lugo

Reviewed By Dave C - North Conway, New Hampshire

UNESCO deems them the finest example of late Roman fortifications in Western Europe. The entire city is a treasure trove of Roman artifacts. There is a Museum that is well worth visiting, as well as many statues, a Roman bath located in the street behind the Cathedral, as well as a Roman house located below the University. This is well worth a day of your time.

Catedral de Lugo

Reviewed By Mike B - Torquay, United Kingdom

Enjoyed our visit here, in fact we preferred it to Santiago de Compostela which it was modelled on when built in the 12th. Century. It was much more peaceful and only a few visitors were respectfully wandering around, no noise and no queuing. The exterior was originally Gothic style but has been changed over the years and has other influences including the Baroque cloister, worth a visit.

Museo Provincial de Lugo

Reviewed By Emma M - Cordoba, Spain

This compact and excellent museum is definitely worth a visit. Apart from the building itself, centred around a stunning medieval cloister, the exhibits offer a glimpse of Galician life of bygone days. For instance, an old kitchen with its tools, various pieces of furniture as well as 17th century clocks.
One glitch. Most of the information, labels and description are in the local Galician language. Not even in Spanish.
You'd have thought that paramount to a museum would be the concept of opening up to the outer world and non-local visitors. And yet...

Parque do Mino

Reviewed By Jose F - Vigo, Spain

Esta es la única zona en que se aprovecha el Miño a su paso por Lugo para el recreo público, aunque las riberas propiamente, tampoco aquí son plenamente utilizables. Precisa de pantallas vegetales para aislarla de la vecina carretera (antigua N-VI) y dotarla de más bancos y zonas de recreo.
Perfecto para corredores y ciclistas. Lástimas que abuden las nieblas.

Reviewed By MijnlieverdFH - Amsterdam

Nice old structure within the walls but the plaza is always with people standing by for some rest or at the cafe for some drinks and meeting friends. It has some greens around to give shades and coolness and benches for the citizens.

The old town is located with the Roman walls of Lugo and contains many narrow and winding streets. Many of these contain ancient buildings with historic value. Castro de Vilaonga is one of these.

As someone stated... There are other much nicer Roman Bridges in Spain and in Galicia, but if you have the time, you should include this in Lugo.
You can walk down one of the old roads or paths to the bridge. That makes it quieter and more interesting. The path at the end of the Rua de Carme is really a nice one. Very old.
The bridge location is nice and you can walk across it as well as along the river. There is a nice cafe right there.
The "Roman Baths" nearby are really nothing but a pile of bricks under a modern hotel. Really nothing to see.

Excellent way to introduce Lugo to everybody particularly the Roman Walls. There is a need for every tourist to know the history of the Roman Walls. Mostly this is why we are here for.
The place is well organized, the exhibit were interesting and informative and attractive. Technology was used for more additional and significant details.

Visited with family. We could look in the windows and see ruins of a ancient family home. Rooms and a courtyard. This was found during construction on university site.
