Lugo is the perfect location for those who want to get to know Galicia besides the relatively 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 a beautiful cathedral with charismatic chapels in the back. Spectacular beaches, also not crowded with many tourists are another highlight of this charming, authentic town, totally worth a day drip from the nearby Santiago de Compostela or other Galician cities. The fact that there is not so much tourism yet can also be seen at the behaviour of the locals, who are extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming.
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 the oceanic climate creates beautiful nature, as well as best conditions 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.
