Description

At the appointed time, we'll meet at the Sireno statue in Porta do Sol square (remember, the statue is high above the ground). We'll begin our exciting journey by introducing the group to some Galician folklore, and then we'll delve deeper and deeper into Vigo's secrets. Enjoy the view of El Sireno as its shadow lengthens... for soon the legendary creatures of the past will bring an eerie atmosphere. Among other exciting tales, you'll learn what the Holy Company, Trasnos, and Lavandeiras are... and learn to fear them. Fact and fiction intertwine, as the Galician people will always be known for their links with the other side. The guide's vivid narrative will captivate you as the night approaches. Churches touched by spiritual forces, the legend of a mysterious dragon that nested in our estuary, the breathtaking tales of witches from the time of the Spanish Inquisition... Are you scared yet? Do not worry, your guide, a Galician expert in our mythology, will teach you how to protect yourself from these evil creatures. This tour will reveal the magic that lies beneath the Vigo estuary. You'll get to know it: Porta do Sol Square, Cruz Verde Street, Ferrerías Street, Alfonso XII Promenade, Poboadores Street, San Francisco Street, Perigos Street, and many more magical places. Can you do it? Do you have what it takes? Then proceed... at your own risk.
