  • This beautiful wall surrounds the entire historic center of Lugo. I accessed from the ramp that overlooks the Cathedral. In twenty minutes you can turn around completely. Another work that recounts the greatness of the Roman empire

  • Somewhere between 2 and 3 km long, it is a treat to be able to walk up onto the top of the wall to circle the inner city. Lots of locals seem to use it as a place to go for an evening jog.  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.
