Would you like to see how a small fishing town has become the largest and most cosmopolitan city in Galicia? We invite you to learn about our history through the rooms and display stands of the Museum of the Sea and the Museum of the Canning Industry. They will show you all the secrets of a Vigo born and transformed thanks to its water.
If you prefer to delve into the essence of a genuine fishing quarter, take a trip to Bouzas. Its cobbled streets, port and people will make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive. Order a tapa of sardines and try a traditional liqueur in one of the taverns in its historical centre or near the port.
And, of course, don't leave without visiting the Paseo dos Peixes promenade as the sun sets over the Estuary of Vigo.
No one knows what enjoying nature in its purest state means until they have been to the Islands of Cíes. A perfect location for enjoying a day with the family and forgetting about the world in one of its marvellous coves.
You can get there by scheduled transport or you can hire your own boat. One of the bottlenose dolphins that live in the estuary might decide to escort you on your way to the Islands… You can also enjoy a few days' camping, go on a hiking route or enjoy diving around unique marine seascapes.
From impressive modernist buildings to archaeological sites, including cobbled streets, Romanesque churches, pazos (typical Galician country homes), defence forts and incredible monuments such as the Sireno.
And what better way to visit monumental Vigo than wandering around its streets? Vigo offers you an array of self-guided urban routes so that you can discover the city on your own and in your own time.
If you only have a few hours to spare or if you are travelling with children and want to see the most important parts of the city, the Tourist Bus is an excellent alternative. It offers explanations in various languages so that you can hear information about the essential sights in Vigo: the vantage point of O Castro, the Park of Castrelos, the Beach of Samil and the Fish Market, among many others.
Spending a night in a pazo by the sea? Enjoying a spa in the city centre? In Vigo, you can.
And before going back to your hotel, our restaurants will serve the very best in Galician gastronomy. From a selection of shellfish to our delicious meats. All accompanied with excellent wines from the Rías Baixas region. The choice is yours.
Nothing better for forgetting your daily routine than a spot of adrenaline. In Vigo, you can enjoy adventure sports without having to leave the city. Enjoy skating at Samil, go surfing, spend an afternoon’s paintball with the children or do a quad bike route with your partner.
And to get your strength back, a tapas or wine route around the city's historical centre: from Praza da Constitución to the area around the Co-cathedral; along Cesteiros or Rúa Real up to Teófilo Llorente...
