DISCOVERING VIGO
Vigo is Galicia´s largest town, situated in the north-west of Spain. Vigo is reputed to be the biggest fishing port in Spain. This modern and cosmopolitan city is located in the mouth of a deep ria spanned by a high bridge called “Rande”.
Vigo is comfortable to visit at summer so you can enjoy its long and sandy beaches, forget coming in autumn or winter because it is an awful rainy city. In the city centre, near the sea, you can find the old part of town; it is my favourite. If you are interested in art, here you can visit the cathedral, but if you are only looking for the best place to eat, you have to come here; it’s specialized in seafood, especially in oysters. Furthermore, it is an excellent place to go out at night.
The most beautiful place in Vigo is the Natural Park of Cies Islands. The islands are quite near the city, it only takes 15 minutes to arrive there, by boat of course. At Cies there are the most beautiful beaches of all Spain, with fine sand and crystal clear water. As you can see in the photo (see above) there are three islands with a lot of vegetation and a lot of birds: in one of the islands there is a bird’s observatory and a lighthouse.
I hope this information motivate you to visit this beautiful city because it is worthy.
