Vigo is growing in popularity as a must-see Spanish destination – and with Cruise 1st Australia you could visit this wonderful city for less. Take a look at our Mediterranean cruise deals for cruises visiting Vigo, or read more to find out what you can see and do while you’re there.
Vigo is located in the Galician region (north west coast) of Spain. Its position makes it an ideal stop for cruises visiting other popular Mediterranean cruise destinations like Lisbon and Gibraltar.
It is actually the world’s second-largest fishing port after Tokyo – so if fresh seafood is your thing, you’ll be spoilt for choice here. Enjoy the local octopus, spider crab and shellfish alongside some more traditional options. But don’t worry – if seafood isn’t for you, there’s still plenty to choose from in the city’s many restaurants.
Culture buffs will want to make sure they visit the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Vigo (Museum of Modern Art), which leans toward the experimental and features a variety of fascinating modern art, including new displays from up-and-coming artists. It is widely considered one of the most important museums of modern art in Spain.
And architecture lovers won’t be disappointed either. The Old Town is a big architectural departure from the modern city, and features Romanesque churches, cobbled streets and four of the original town squares. You’ll enjoy spending some time here, away from the busy industrial city that Vigo has become.
Vigo is also renowned for its beautiful beaches, and if you visit at the right time of year you can kick back and relax while you soak up some rays.
