Buckle up for a thrilling escapade from Santiago de Compostela to the enchanting realms of Galicia, starting with the storied city of Lugo! Prepare to be mesmerized by an ancient city encased by its awe-inspiring Roman wall, an architectural marvel that not only stands intact but also encircles the entire city. Our journey kicks off with a lively 1.5-hour guided tour that will weave you through the cobblestone streets of Lugo’s historic center. Here, you’ll get up close with the grandiose Roman wall, peek into the majestic cathedral, and lose yourself (metaphorically, of course!) in the nooks and crannies of this venerable city. But that’s just the appetizer! Next, we'll whisk you away to the spellbinding shores of Aguas Santas, affectionately dubbed Playa de las Catedrales, or Cathedrals Beach. Why such a celestial name? Just wait until you see the dramatic rock formations that rise majestically along the coastline, mimicking the soaring flying buttresses of Gothic cathedrals. Stroll beneath these natural arches during low tide, marvel at the sculptural wonders carved by the relentless sea, and let the ocean's melody serenade you in this picturesque setting. This adventure promises not just a tour, but a journey through time and nature, showcasing some of Galicia’s most breathtaking landscapes and historical treasures. It’s a day of awe-inspiring sights and soul-soothing experiences in one of Spain's most beautiful regions. Don't forget your camera and your sense of wonder—you’ll want to capture every moment of this unforgettable expedition!
