The Roman Walls of Lugo

Attraction details
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

The only intact circular Roman Wall of its kind. An Unesco world heritage site. A great place to walk and sightsee or to jog. The top of the wall is very wide and it is obvious that many locals of Lugo come here to jog. It is an easy walk or jog, with many entry/exit points and wheelchair accessible. Bring your camera because the views are amazing!

Loved the Roman Wall that surrounds the ¨Casco Viejo¨ of the city. Lugo is very proud of their history and have made an effort to preserve the wall in excellent condition. Taking a walk around the old city and viewing from the top gives one a sense of what it might have been like for the sentries watching out for the welfare of the people. If you are in Lugo, why would you not visit the wall?

Well preserved and quite incredible that it is still standing. Wonderful to walk on this wall in the quiet of the morning.

If you love history these walls are a must. They are reputedly the most complete Roman defense structure extant in Western Europe.
You can walk all the way round them (2km) and the sights of the city from the walls are fascinating. Lugo is not an obviously wealthy city but so what.
There are few tourists around which we found surprising and their absence helped us get the feel and atmosphere of the city. A delightful place and worth a visit.

Walking along the walls is great. The museum, not so much. Not all accesses are equal so look around.
