In the heart of Rías Baixas, Vigo is the biggest city in Galicia. With a strong working-class tradition of fishermen and industrial workers, Vigo is entrepreneurial and knows the value of hard work. Today, the city is modern and open, full of culture, monuments, history, cuisine and the unrivalled natural beauty of the Galician coastline.
Vigo has over 50 beaches, including the idyllic sands of the Cíes Islands, a natural park at the mouth of the Ria de Vigo, just a short ferry ride from the city.
Wandering the old town, you can discover Galicia’s culinary delights at Mercado da Pedra before marvelling at magnificent examples of Art Nouveau architecture between Porta do Sol and Alameda.
