Search the best hotels in Vigo
The biggest city in Galicia, Vigo boasts a great choice of bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Centred on a huge natural harbour, it must have the world's freshest seafood! There's something for all tastes – wonderful food, modern and historic areas, art galleries, museums and wide clean beaches., and our pick of the best places to stay in Vigo are ideally situated for you to enjoy all of the above.
Explore the historic town, relax at a pavement cafe in the Praza da Constitución. Wander down the narrow old streets and discover family run restaurants; sample true Galician cooking with fresh local ingredients – fish, shrimp, lobster, Galician pork, Iberian ham, salads and distinctive local cheeses. Brave the Pimientos de Padron, a dish of small sweet green peppers; about one in ten is a fiery surprise!
Energetic explorers should climb up to the ancient Castelo do Castro, built to fend off the British Navy, but now welcoming visitors with lush gardens, beautiful ponds and pools, waterfalls and superb views of the port and river below.
Head west of town for sandy beaches like Samil, a mile of bleached white sand with pools, showers, lifeguards and an alluring ice cream cafe.
Out of town, explore the beautiful Galician countryside of green woods, rustic villages, traditional farmhouses, ancient stone granaries and peaceful rivers.
The must-do trip from Vigo is the Cies Islands, a short ferry ride from the harbour. Relax on beautiful Rodas beach, a sweeping arc of soft sand, or climb up to the lighthouse for views that just get better and better. Unspoilt nature, wind-sculpted rock formations, fragrant pine woods, crystal clear water, a day in the Cies stays in memory forever.
