Visited Lugo many years ago, to visit the Roman walls. Not really on the tourist trail, but amazingly well preserved, in a nice city.

The Roman walls of Lugo are a UNESCO designated historic site for the wonderful Roman wall, it circles the old town and straddles into the newer part mixing with modern structures.

There are numerous delights in the historic old town of Lugo, not least a lovely stroll around the Roman Walls, which are very well preserved. Easy walking with plenty of places to return back to the town.

These walls - the best in Spain completely enclose the old town and are just over 2km long and the amazing thing is that you can walk entirely around them. It is fair to say that it is more the lower parts that are currently...More
