Embark on a guided city walking tour of Lugo. Explore the most important sites, such as Saint Mary's Cathedral and the City Walls, and hear the history behind each turn from your guide. Meet your guide at Praza Maior, Lugo's main city square. From here, set off toward Saint Mary's Cathedral, an impressive religious building dating back to the 12th century.

Visit the chapels dedicated to San Froilán and the Virgin with Big Eyes, the patron saints of Lugo.

Visit the Domus Do Mitreo Museum, built on the archaeological remains of an ancient Roman temple. Delve into Lugo's Roman past beyond its famous walls. Finally, arrive at Lugo's old prison, now a cultural center located just five minutes from Praza Maior, where your tour will end.
