Welcome to Lugo

Welcome to the north, welcome to Galicia. For those who don't know Lugo, it is a place that can be summarized into: seaside, meadows, and rich cuisine. Which is not wrong, but it is not the whole picture either. Because those who come to Lugo looking for something else, will definitely find it.

This is a land marked by the presence of pilgrims, and by the natural reserve of Ancares home to enchanted woods and its traditional Celtic palloza houses. But here's also Terra Chá wich is also witness of the Celtic tribes, jacobeos and gorgeous lakes that are only some of the wonders that you will be able to visit if you choose this as your destination for rural tourism in Lugo.

This is also a land of history, of a history linked with the ancient Roman times which have left us with monuments like the city walls that remind us of the origins of this province, such as the case of the aforementioned city walls, the cathedral, or the Palacio Arzobispal.

To continue with your trip, how about a stop in Mariña Lucense, openings its doors to visitors as the perfect marriage of sea and land.

Let us give you a taste of the gastronomy in Lugo, with fish as its main protagonist in recipes such as cod patty, or the typical roasted sardines. But, thanks to its geography providing with some of the best vast, green meadows for pasture, it is also a gastronomy where beef of the highest quality plays also an important role.

Explore the region

Wave by wave, Lugo's coast has been shaped into an ideal place to enjoy of its virgin beaches,hidden in secret bays. But the beauty of Lugo is not only limited to the seaside, since we need to add to the sum a vast historical and artistic heritage, as well as natural. The richness of its nature is marked by the contrasts that will give you the chance of choosing between large, plains by the river Miño, or expeditions to the wilderness of a place such as Sierra de Caurel. Although maybe one of the reasons why this province is well known is for the different villages that are part of the journey of many pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela, the oldest pilgrimage in Europe. In order to gather your strength during the trip, you cannot forget to try the rich and varied gastronomy of this region.

About the region

The origin of the city of Lugo goes back to the year 25 B.C, the time it was founded by the Romans, which makes it the oldest city of Galicia.

Even though it is commonly known as the 'Playa de las Catedrales' (the beach of cathedrals) because of the strange shape of its cliffs, the offiial name is La Playa de las Aguas Santas.

Where to sleep

Where to sleep in Lugo

The streets of Lugo are a mixture of historical monuments with plenty of bars and restaurants to take a break and gather your breath, and shops where you can find some very special souvenirs. Away from the center you will find quieter areas, where you will only hear the sound of silence and tranquility.

If you prefer doing some tourism in the countryside, let us tell you that in the small village of O Cebreiro you will find the oldest pre-Romanesque church of the jacobea route, and in the town of Foz you will find the Basílica de San Martín de Mondoñedo, the oldest cathedral in Spain. Monforte de Lemos is also considered by many as the most beautiful country village in the whole country, and Viveiro y Ribadeo two of the most beautiful villages in the seaside.

Granted the title of the Most Noble and Most Loyal, it's not strange that the city of Lugo is full of charming spots: the Roman city walls, the undeniable landmark of the city declared UNESCO world heritage, or the Catedral de Santa María, together with the church of San Pedro, or the old city hall. In the Mariña Lucense you will find more than 60 Km of coast waiting for you, with beautiful views such as the ones in Playa de las Catedrales with its impressive cliffs, sculpted by the the wind and the sea. More than 350 m above sea level you will find the viewpoint of San Roque where, apart from being able to witness one of the best panoramic views in the whole area, you can also check out an old chapel from the 16th century. Los Cañones del Sil are shared with the neighbouring province of Orense; a true land of fairies, with high and low grounds that can reach the 500 m, and rocky walls which have up to a 50 m slope. The best way to enjoy of such views is sailing the river by catamaran, although exploring the landscape doing a hiking route is also an excellent choice. Besides, part of the territory is also occupied by the Cañones del Sil.
