Busy city with character.

Vigo is Galicia's most populated city, with the most important port. The historic quarter is very charming and well preserved.
The views form the park at the top of the hill (Parque Do Castro) are amazing. You can see for miles. If you get a chance go into the park It is so pretty and has lots of statues too.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lively and full of character.

    Nathalie, one of my favorite things in Vigo was the straw basket street that wound down to the port. Loved oysters and Paella in a restaurant at the port.

    You wouldn't catch me dead eating oysters or anything else than fish for that matter! Lovely city, hope to see more of Spain one day.

    Silvino's statue is an oxymoron, isn't it?
