The Roman Walls of Lugo
In the province of the same name lies its capital Lugo, one of the most populous cities in the autonomous community of Galicia in Spain. The city is the only one on the world that is completely surrounded by intact Roman Walls and though it has gone through many repairs over the years, most of the walls still are reminiscent of its 3rd century character. The walls are also protected and listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000.
Dotted within the old city are impressive and artistic buildings that date back too many different centuries of construction. The Cathedral in Lugo, which is dedicated to St. Mary, has parts that have been built in different times such as its facade that was completed in 1769 though most of the church dates back to 1129. Other buildings in the city include the Convent and church of St. Francis, with its Gothic style. Inside it is the Museo Provincial with a collection of Galicia artwork that dates back from the 18th century. Another popular landmark is the Roman Bridge over Minho while the Church of St. Dominic, the City Hall (Casa de Concello), Palace of the Arts (Circulo de Artes) and the Rosalia de Castro Park are also of note. Also in the city is the Parque do Mino that is suitable for quiet walks in the afternoon with lively fauna and lush flora.
The city and its surrounding landscape look like they are the true inspiration for the castles and royal lands in story books. Its stunning spyres and impressive walls are a spectacle for any kind of traveller. Also, there are some great gastronomical finds in the city such as the Mazo de Santa Comba and the Restaurante Manuel Manuel. Visit other locations with your campervan hire!
