Explore Lugo's unique historic centre on this fascinating guided tour: discover ancient Roman walls, the beautiful cathedral, the Domus do Mitreo Museum, plus much more.
Lugo Guided City Tour
On the day of your tour, meet your guide by the giant chess board located in Praza Maior, Lugo's main city square and the location of the Concello, the town hall.
From here, you'll set off on your guided tour towards Saint Mary's Cathedral, an impressive religious building dating back to the 12th century. Inside this beautiful church, which is an important stop on the Camino Primitivo pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela, you'll be able to admire the different artistic and architectural styles representing its long history: from Romanesque to Gothic to Baroque to Neoclassical. Visit the chapels dedicated to San Froilán and the Virgin with Big Eyes, the patron saints of Lugo.
Just a few steps from the cathedral, you'll next reach Lugo's Roman walls. This is the only city in the world to still be completely surrounded by intact Roman walls, and you'll have the opportunity to walk alongside the ancient defences while learning all about the history of Lucus Augusti, the ancient settlement that became modern Lugo. You'll be left speechless by the excellent preservation of these 3rd century stone walls, which have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Continue your tour at the Domus Do Mitreo Museum, built on the archaeological remains of an ancient Roman temple dedicated to this unknown god. This innovative museum managed by the University of Santiago de Compostela is the perfect opportunity to delve into Lugo's Roman past beyond its famous walls.
We'll stroll through the city's historic centre and visit its main squares: Plaza de Santo Domingo, Plaza del Campo, Plaza de Campo Castelo and, finally, Plaza Mayor. After 2 hours, we'll say our goodbyes and finish our guided tour of Lugo.
Domus Do Mitreo Museum
The Domus Do Mitreo Museum in Lugo is closed every Monday and on some national holidays. If this is the case on the day of your tour of Lugo, we'll visit the towers of Saint Mary's Cathedral instead of the museum where you'll enjoy spectacular views of the whole city!
