Lugo is the only city in the world to be surrounded by completely intact Roman walls, which reach a height of 10 to 15 metres along a 2117-metre circuit ringed with 71 towers. The walk along the top is continuous round the circuit, and features 10 gates. UNESCO as a World Heritage Site protects these 3rd century walls. The bridge over the Minho dates back to Roman times, though many repairs over the centuries have lessened its Roman character.
Other sources suggest that the name Lucus Augusti comes from the Latin word Lucus, which means "sacred grove", or "sacred forest", as the city was founded on the place of a small grove.
Besides the walls, sights include, the Cathedral, dedicated to St. Froilán, built about 1129, though the actual main facade and towers date only from 1769. Its elegant stalls were carved by Francisco Mouro in 1624. This Cathedral enjoys the privilege of having the Blessed Sacrament perpetually exposed, a fact commemorated in the armorial bearings of the town.
See the convent and church of St. Francis, built in gothic style, with remains of the sober cloister. It currently houses the Museo Provincial, which shows a display of Galician art and 18th century architecture.
Next see the Church of St. Dominic, the Palace of the arts and the Town Hall, a large Baroque structure with a mid-18th century façade. Annexed is a clock tower, originally from the 16th century, but rebuilt later.
After the guided visit you will have some free time for shopping and you will re-board your bus to return to Coruña.
