Join us for a walking tour through Vigo old town and Cangas. You will be picked up from the cruise port by your English speaking guide and continue strolling towards the center. Vigo is a fishing and trading port and the largest city in Galicia. It is located on the southernmost coast of Galicia (Rías Baixas) and in the far west on the bank of the Ría de Vigo, which cuts into the country for about 30 km. Vigo has the most important sardine catch in Europe. From 13th century texts in Galician, it appears that the place already had a bathing life back then. The city has wide flat and smooth rollable avenues and a small center.
During a two hour walk, you will get to explore the Old Town of Vigo. The Old Town is best characterized as a small charismatic neighborhood in the center of a bustling industrial city.
You see the Esplanade, the impressive Praza do Constitución square, the banks of the Berbés, and the Praza do Pescadería. And not to be missed is Vigo’s most famous market, the A Pedra, one of the city’s great attractions and located next to the Port of Vigo.
Following this walk, your guide will escort you to the ferry (return ticket, not included) across the Rias (Galician fjords) to visit Cangas. The boat ride is approximately 30 minutes one way.
Cangas is a small but pretty medieval harbor town. The most iconic religious building is ‘la colegiata,’ the Catholic temple situated in the center of town. The historic center is filled with traditional fishermen houses, lively markets and squares, cafes, and local shops. At the end of your tour, your guide escorts you back to the ferry and drop you off at the port again.
