Tour description

Meet with us the ancient Lucus Augusti, as Lugo was baptized in Roman times.

Let yourself be guided and we will take you to discover the past of this beautiful city, while we discover all the secrets it keeps within its walls.

The Roman past of Lugo is undeniable, as it is known as the city with the greatest Roman influence in all of Galicia , but we will also see the mark left by the medieval era, reusing Roman elements , creating a mixture of styles that reminds us of this Roman and medieval past in its streets and buildings.

Lugo is the great jewel of the Galician Romanesque. Inland city bathed by the Miño. And it is not surprising that the Romans fell in love with their land when they came to this place. Well, within its attraction is the river itself with its Roman bridge. Its wall, also from Roman times, is the emblem of the city, keeping within and outside the walls many examples of the legacy of the lavish Empire.

From the beginning of the tour in the Plaza Mayor, we can enjoy its medieval streets, delight ourselves with its cathedral, or return to that imperial era with the walls or the remains of domus from Roman times.

Route: Plaza Mayor, Plaza de Santa María, Cathedral, Domus de Mitreo, Wall, Plaza de Campo Castelo, Rúa da Raíña, Mercado de Abastos, Plaza del Campo.
