Vigo

Overview

Introduction

Vigo, the largest city in the Spanish community of Galicia, is both an important industrial center and a major fishing port whose sardine catches are exported to all corners of Europe.

Although it provides the basis of the province's economy, the city is remarkably downbeat and relatively nontouristy. Its modest array of elegant period buildings and intricate old Berbes quarter form a wonderful example of "authentic" Spain.

Most tourists in the area tend to stay in beach resorts such as nearby Baiona, though cruise ship visitors and land-based holidaymakers alike relish visits to traditional areas of Vigo such as the Rua da Pescaderia, where they can see stall after stall selling freshly caught oysters of an often impressive size.
