Full description
This visit will begin in the Plaza Mayor, just in front of the City Hall, our guide will be waiting for you with a blue umbrella, so you can recognise him. Here we will talk about the Roman origins of the city through its history. Here are the statues of the founders of Lucus Augusti, as Lugo was baptized in Roman times. Paulo Fabio Máximo receives the map of the city from Emperor Augustus. But Lugo is also preserved as a medieval city and as proof of this we have its historic quarter, located within its walls, where we can see the Cathedral and the streets surrounded by the typical arcades. Lugo is a city that grew within its Roman walls over time. From the Cathedral you can access the walls, we will make a section of these where we can see Lugo outside the walls and inside the walls as well as some remains of domus or Roman houses discovered in the area. After strolling through its walls, we will enter its streets full of local shops and tapas areas, where we can enjoy the great gastronomic offer of the city, because as the saying goes "...and to eat: Lugo". Another proof of its gastronomy is the Mercado de Abastos, where you can see all its most typical products. We cannot miss its famous "wine zone", for this reason we will be finishing the tour in the Plaza del Campo, where the weekly market used to be held, today the starting point for the streets where you can taste a great dish accompanied by a good wine.
