Located on a hill on the banks of the river Miño, the city of Lugo preserves major remains of its Roman past, among them its ancient wall, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Inside the walls, the city conserves quiet pedestrian streets, wide squares and spacious gardens, where buildings such as the Cathedral, the Archiepiscopal Palace, and the City Hall stand out. But the historic quarter also houses some of the best restaurants in Galicia, where it is possible to sample the excellent fresh meats and fish which have earned Lugos gastronomy recognized acclaim.

Lugo, located in the interior of the province on the banks of the river Miño, is the Galician provincial capital in which the most significant traces of Roman civilization remain. The greatest example of the citys Roman legacy is its wall.

Built in the 3rd century AD, in what was then called Lucus Augusti, this stone construction has managed to survive the passing of the centuries and continues to be the architectural element which most defines the citys appearance, marking the boundaries between the historic quarter and the newer suburbs. The uniqueness of this ancient fortress and its good condition mean it is the only Roman wall declared a World Heritage Site.

A good way of seeing the city is precisely by standing atop this imposing construction, some 10 metres high, and strolling along the 2,200 metres of its perimeter. From this position it is possible to admire the historic quarter sheltering below the walls.

Any one of the walls ten gates gives access to an urban network of quiet pedestrian streets flanked by sober granite buildings. Some of the most emblematic are the Carmen gate, traditionally used by the pilgrims who were heading for Santiago de Compostela; the Nova gate, San Pedro gate or the Santiago gate, built in the 18th century and which provides direct access to the Cathedral of Lugo.
