City A - Z
Located in northwestern Spain, Vigo is one of the coastal cities of Europe that is considered a gateway city to the continent.
The historic city center is filled with the narrow streets and ancient charm one comes to expect from a city with extensive history, while Celtic ruins provide visitors with a glimpse of antiquity. From the beach to the Castro fortress and everything in between, a holiday in Vigo is something that will help you to relax more than ever before!
In order to maximize your time in this city, we’ve put together a few of this community’s essential sights for your consideration. Let’s take a look!
How Can You Ignore a Piece of Paradise?
One of the best day trips that any city on the planet can provide is based out of Vigo. Take a ferry trip out to the Cies Islands and you won’t be disappointed by the views, the beaches, or the chances to explore. You can take a hike out to the lighthouse once you disembark from the ferry to snap some incredible photos. Make sure to keep an eye out for sea life because pods of bottlenose dolphins call these islands home. Lay out, relax with a snack, and you can enjoy the entire day for less than 50 euros total.
If you’re looking for a beach that is on the mainland, but still provides a sense of privacy and adventure, then the Rias Baixas is the place to go. It’s a beach that has been recently reclaimed, yet it has been kept in a very natural state. There are places to hike, high points to take some great photos, and there’s even a separated spot for those who wish to get a tan without the tan lines. Parking can sometimes be tough, so plan your trip accordingly.
Are You Ready To Explore Inside?
Sometimes the weather just doesn’t cooperate enough for a visit to the beach, which means you’ve got the perfect opportunity to visit one of the fantastic museums in Vigo. One of the most fascinating is the Museum of the Sea, which is fully dedicated to all things that are associated with the ocean. You’ll find everything from naval artifacts to the tinned food that sailors used to eat.
One of the most important museums in Spain for contemporary art is also in Vigo. It’s located in a building that dates back to the 19th century and was originally built to serve as a prison. It was renovated about twenty years ago to turn it into the art museum. A visit to the Naturnova Museum is worthwhile because of the interactive exhibits, while those who love photography will enjoy the Galician Center of Photography in town.
Are you ready to visit Vigo and have an outstanding holiday? Whether your plans are for a couple days or for a couple weeks, you’ll be able to plan out something fresh and new every day that will bring you a sense of tranquility like never before. Get out and enjoy everything Vigo has to offer and you won’t be disappointed!
