A walk through 500 years of history of medieval Fortresses, Kings and Caravels


During this amazing 4. 30 hours tour you will see all the most popular sights and experience the best parts of Vigo and southern Galicia. We will go from the 'roaring 20's look of the city centre towards the historical Castro Hill, an ancient fortress these days a park, with its great views over the Atlantic ocean. Heading south, we will pass near one of the longest beaches and certainly one of the most popular urban ones: Samil beach. The attractive seaside resort Baiona will welcome us with its medieval MonterrealFortress - these days a 4 stars Parador/Hotel, whose gardens we will visit to enjoy the views and the stories related with this part of the coast of Spain. After that we will head towards the tiny and beautiful baroque old part of town. As soon as we reach Vigo again and we will have to say goodbye, I will show you best places for some tapas or tasting some fresh oysters along with a good glass of white spanish Rias Baixas/ Albariño wine!

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a fantastic tour. When we got there we asked to change it. Italo was very accommodating. He was very knowledgeable about history and the buildings we saw. When we get back again we will definitely book with him. Anyone wishing to see Vigo should use him. I cannot say enough about our tour.
