Full description
From Santiago de Compostela, you will head to the wonderful city of Lugo, a city recognized by its incredible Roman wall that surrounds it. A 1.5-hour guided tour will take you around the historic center, giving to the chance to discover the famous wall, a practically intact Roman wall, the cathedral, as well as simply wander around and get lost in this old city.

Afterwards, you will head to the beach of Aguas Santas, or as it is popularly known, Playa de las Catedrales (Cathedrals Beach), due to the large rock formations that evoke the flying buttresses of the Gothic cathedrals. Take advantage of the low tide to enjoy the rock formations made by the erosion of the sea. This is one of the most beautiful enclaves of Galicia!

A ver...La playa de las catedrales es divina, pero nos ha hecho un día horrible (vendaval, lluvia, frío) aunque ha merecido la pena, pues ya íbamos concienciados, y entraba en las quinielas. Para el que vaya en esta fecha: Manga larga, pantalón largo, poncho para lluvia, paraguas (mejor el poncho porque lo otro vuela), y aunque les suene a cachondeo, unos calcetines y si tienen bambas de repuesto, mejor. He terminado con los pies llenitos de agua, y helados. Hay charcos considerables, en los que debes meterte para seguir avanzando. Lugo me ha resultado aburrido, soso...Una pérdida de tiempo, en una palabra, igualito que Ribadeo, ni chicha, ni limonada. Dos horas de ida/dos de vuelta merecen la pena para la playa, pero no para lo demás. Pienso que un tour con sólo las playas, sería muchísimo mejor. Yo pagaría lo mismo. María, nuestra guía, muy maja, atenta, y formada. Y José, el conductor muy amable.
