Vigo Travel guide
Vigo : Michelin's recommendations
The town of Vigo is particularly beautiful. Encircled by parks and pine groves, it extends in the shape of an amphitheatre around the bay, protected from winds off the Atlantic. Fishermen and sailors, who have contributed to Vigo’s status as Spain’s most important fishing port and a starting-point for transatlantic voyages, still live in the old district of Berbés. Enjoy a stroll through this picturesque district and don’t miss the delightful sunset views from the top of the El Castro hill.
