Description

Embark on a guided city walking tour of Lugo. Explore the most important sites, such as Saint Mary's Cathedral and the City Walls, and hear the history behind each turn from your guide. Meet your guide at Praza Maior, Lugo's main city square. From here, set off toward Saint Mary's Cathedral, an impressive religious building dating back to the 12th century. Step inside and admire the different architectural styles representing its long history, from Romanesque to Neoclassical. Visit the chapels dedicated to San Froilán and the Virgin with Big Eyes, the patron saints of Lugo. Continue to Lugo's Roman walls, the only city in the world completely surrounded by intact Roman walls. Walk alongside this UNESCO World Heritage Site while learning about the history of Lucus Augusti, the ancient settlement that became modern Lugo. Next, arrive at Museo Provincial, Lugo's city museum. Marvel at the extensive collection of archaeological artifacts, religious objects, and local artwork preserved in this Gothic-style building that was formerly a convent dedicated to Saint Francis. Wander over to the House of Mosaics, home to the remains of a villa of a noble Roman family. Inside, see the magnificent mosaics and get a feel for how the wealthiest and most powerful people lived during Antiquity. Visit the Domus Do Mitreo Museum, built on the archaeological remains of an ancient Roman temple. Delve into Lugo's Roman past beyond its famous walls. Finally, arrive at Lugo's old prison, now a cultural center located just five minutes from Praza Maior, where your tour will end.
