Vigo. Port City (c) Port of Vigo


The city of Vigo (the most populated city of the Northwestern Spain), also known as “The city of olives”, is located on one of the most beautiful landscapes in the Iberian peninsula, and looks over the bay with the same name.
From the Cies Islands up to the island of San Simon, and then expanding after the Rande bridge; the whole bay is dotted with picturesque small fishing villages.

The Celts and the Romans, who left many artistic traces, lived in Vigo, a place that was officially appointed as a city in 1816.
Historical events: attacked by pirates driven by Drake and the Duke of Lancaster; witness to the Battle of Rande, taken by the French in 1809 and liberated by Cachamuina and Morillo, promoted to “Loyal and Valiant City”, led into the industrial era with the help of the Catalonians, has reclaimed land from the sea and turned into a cosmopolitan metropolis. The highest stands are the hills of O Castro and A Guia, and from there it winds down to the charming old quarter.
