  • The Roman walls of Lugo are the best preserved in Spain. This is a unique object. UNESCO has recognized World heritage twice. First initially as Roman walls in 2000, and then included when expanded...  more »
  • Lugo has cleverly maintained its Roman walls, and the 2.2 kilometer walk on top of them provides a great place to exercise for the locals and a beautiful view of the old city for the tourists.  more »

  • A unique monument from the Roman Empire. You can walk (or even run) on the wall and enjoy the views of the surrounding landscape.
  • The wall is about 2km long and is used by locals and tourists alike for recreation and sightseeing. The top of the wall is wide and there are plenty of places to stop, look around, and take pictures. The architecture of the city, both inside and outside, of the wall is fascinating. Keep in mind there isnt much shade when walking on the wall, so put on some sunscreen for the fairer-skinned people on a sunny day.
