Small but elegant restaurants serve fresh produce from the lush pastures that start outside the city walls and the vineyards of the Miño riverbanks. Finding the right Lugo hotels is simplified by Venere which has partnered with an extensive range of hotels across the city to provide the best value Lugo rooms to suit your budget and preferences.

What's Lugo Like?

A UNESCO World Heritage site, the 2km of dark slate Roman walls with 85 towers that ring the old town of Lugo are an obvious vantage point to take in the city's scenic location overlooking the Galician countryside. Within the walls Lugo's ornate 12th-century cathedral is a particular highlight, built in a variety of architectural styles. Look out for the unusual Baroque chapel of Our Lady with the Large Eyes. There is more robust architecture in evidence in the 17th-century Bishop's Palace. For a break from the sightseeing, the Rosalia De Castro gardens, named after Galicia's favorite poet, offer shade and respite. Close to the city center are the remains of a Roman bathhouse, evidence that Lugo was once an important spa. Lugo hotels allow visitors to enjoy the peaceful ambiance of this unique city.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Lugo

Lugo has its roots in a rural Galician community, so do not expect the exuberance and flamboyance of southern Spain. It is also rare to hear English spoken in Lugo. Lugo locals are reticent, but will welcome visitors who try to speak a little Spanish, or even better, the Gallego dialect, which is a blend of Spanish and Portuguese influences. Lugo locals are very proud of their cuisine and trying the local specialties is a must in Lugo, with hearty country recipes featuring on many restaurant menus. However, the city also has some of Galicia's most prestigious fine dining establishments creating game and fish dishes. Venere offers easy solutions for travelers looking for their ideal Lugo hotels. The Venere site features detailed appraisals by past guests, helpful photos and sample room details to allow you to make an informed choice about your fine Lugo accommodation.
