Vigo is the biggest city of Galicia. It is known by many things, from the industrial heritage of fishing, ships building and automotive industries to the charming streets of the Old Town, its vibrant nightlife. But the city of Vigo is also a paradise for shopping. Regarding this, the city council decided to do something special for Christmas in the last years, in order to place the city in the map of holidays destinations. The result is the spectacular Christmas lights of Vigo.
Regarding the lighting plan released by the Mayor, 2019 could be remembered by “the year of the awesome Christmas lights”. More than 10 million of LED lights and 465 Christmas trees (one of them will reach 60 meters high, bigger than the famous New York tree) will turn the night into day in 334 of the 1.700 streets of the city. Themed areas in the main square of city center (like the house of Santa Claus) and 3 different christmas markets will complete the menu.

Sandy paradise is just one step from Vigo. When summer comes, lots of Vigueses take the boat to Cies Islands, a 40 minutes boat trip to find the Rodas Beach, in the National Park of Illas Atlánticas and named the best beach in the World by The Guardian in 2007. You won’t believe that this is an Atlantic beach, as it seems more a Caribbean one. During summer time only 2.200 visitors are allowed to enter the Islands daily, in order to protect the delicate ecosystem, so book your tickets with at least two weeks of advance to ensure your visit!
And if you feel like getting into a bit of History, find a couple of hours to visit Castrelos park. Its parish belonged to the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem until 1862. And as you are in the area, get to Santa María de Castrelos church, a thirteen century romantic gem that holds impressive ornamentation in its western door and possibly templar crosses. A peaceful place in the middle of this vibrant city.
