Information

Lugo is the capital of the Primitive Way in Galicia. This city of almost 100,000 inhabitants has a great deal to offer travellers.

From fine dining to walks on the top of its Roman walls surrounding the City, two kilometres in total and, of course, around the historic centre of Lugo itself, a city steeped in heritage. Those continuing the Camino should cross the Porta do San Pedro (or Toledana) and enter, via the street of the same name, the historic heart of the city.

El Coqueto the public albergue is also located in this area and perhaps one of the best restaurants of the city, also located here is the cathedral dedicated to Saint Maria and the main square (Plaza Maior). The Primitive Way-signposted by bronze scallop shells on the ground-passes through the walled enclosure from East to West. Abandoning the city through its oldest gateway, the Miña. In this stretch pilgrims can enjoy the highest quality cuisine and see the historic footprints left in the ancient city.

Distance to Santiago On the demanding but quiet and peaceful Primitive Way, Lugo is located one hundred kilometres from Santiago. Pilgrims departing from here will thus complete sufficient kilometres to merit the Compostela. The signposts for the Camino in the historic centre of Lugo are similar to those found in Oviedo: Bronze scallop shells engraved on the pavement. If it rains or snows they can be difficult to see.

Comments

Por el no masificado y exigente Primitivo, Lugo dista cien kilómetros de Santiago. Quién peregrine a pie desde aquí hará méritos suficientes para conseguir la Compostela. La señalización del Camino en el casco histórico de Lugo es como la de Oviedo: conchas de bronce sobre el pavimento. Si llueve -o nieva- son difíciles de ver.

Curiosities

Lugo has two main fiestas a year. The first is Arde Lucus. During this festivity the entire city remembers, over four days in mid June, its roman past. The other main festivity is that of San Froilán and from the 5th of October the walled city becomes the party capital of Galicia.

Y so comida aun más!!! De todo Galicia, en Lugo es donde mejor se come y en donde mejor te trata la gente (creo). Tienen fama de huraños porque son muy tímidos, pero son muy muy amables.

Me gusta quedarme en un hostal de la salida a precio muy asequible y con la libertad de acción para entrar y salir cuando se quiera...

Impresionante las murallas de esta ciudad, es un sitio de parada obligatoria si te acercas a Galicia.
