Lugo's patron saint festivities, the Fiestas de San Froilán, are Galicia's most visited… and they last almost the whole first fortnigth of October.
During those days Lugo's inhabitants convert to one religion: that of theatre, music, open-air dancing, street bands… and tapas! For many, the best in Galicia, especially the tasty gastronomic specialities: octopus “á feira”, “carne ao caldeiro” (spicy boiled meat) and the delicious traditional desserts of Lugo.
Lugo is also and, above all, a city with a splendorous Roman past, which is evidenced by its Wall which is a World Heritage Site, its Roman Baths or its Roman Bridge.And do not forget to visit its Cathedral and its Virgen de los Ojos Grandes (Our Lady of the Large Eyes), a beautiful medieval polychrome stone sculpture. And to get your strength back, a tapa and a glass of Mencía wine at one of the busy taverns in the historic quarter.
