Lugo is the perfect location for those who want to get to know Galicia, off the track of the most popular touristy cities like Santiago de Compostela, and dive more into the culture of the region. A must-do is to walk on the 1700 years old Roman Wall, which is one of the main attractions of the town, along with the beautiful cathedral with charismatic chapels in the back. Spectacular and not too crowded beaches are another highlight of this charming, authentic town, totally worth a day drip from the nearby Santiago de Compostela or other Galician cities. There is not so much tourism yet and the locals are extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming.

Region: Galicia

Galicia’s coastline expands to a moderate amount of 1660 km, including the small islands close by, such as Arousa Island. The region is relatively hilly, with mountains up to 2000m high, and in combination with the oceanic climate creates beautiful nature. The conditions are the best for extensive farming activities, which is the origin of most of the region’s income besides shipbuilding and fishing and last but not least tourism. The coastline is dazzling with breathtaking cliffs all along the seashore, sprinkled with charming little seaside towns like Combarro.
