Vigo Guide

Iberian Spain’s most westernmost city, Vigo is situated on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and is surrounded by a spectacular mountain landscape. This historic and cultured city is steeped in tradition and is also home to Europe’s largest fishing fleet. The city centre is perfect for walks down narrow winding streets, whilst at night it comes alive with lively tapas bars, sumptuous seafood restaurants and buzzing bars and clubs.

Vigo is the gateway to Illas Cíes or the Cies Islands with ships leaving the port at least four times daily, with the crossing taking around 45 minutes. The port area has been redeveloped in recent years with a shopping mall in close proximity to the dock. However, Muelle de Transatlanticos, where the ships set from, is located just in front of the fortress city. You’ll find it a short walk down the palm tree-lined Avenida del Catillo waterfront promenade to the city centre. The terminal itself has a small amount of shops and a café with Wi-Fi connection on the first floor.
