Description

For approximately two hours, fundamental to understand and feel this wonderful city and its estuary, this tour will surely not leave you indifferent. Because the best places are those that we did not expect or surprise us... And Vigo always surprises! On the day of the free walking tour, we'll meet in Praza Porta do Sol, a square in the heart of Vigo, where you'll find the famous sculpture of 'O Sireno', the symbol of this Galician city. From there, we'll head towards one of the city's treasures, little known by tourists, where you'll be able to enjoy spectacular views of Vigo and its estuary. We'll continue our free guided tour through the main streets and squares of the historic center, where we'll learn about the history of the city and some of the famous figures who have made Vigo a tourist attraction. Next, we'll head to the harbor and the landscaped avenues of the nautical area, where our guide will tell us all about the development of the city, its migratory history, and the legends of sunken treasures that surround Vigo.
