Full description
From Santiago de Compostela, you will head to the wonderful city of Lugo, a city recognized by its incredible Roman wall that surrounds it. A 1.5-hour guided tour will take you around the historic center, giving to the chance to discover the famous wall, a practically intact Roman wall, the cathedral, as well as simply wander around and get lost in this old city. Afterwards, you will head to the beach of Aguas Santas, or as it is popularly known, Playa de las Catedrales (Cathedrals Beach), due to the large rock formations that evoke the flying buttresses of the Gothic cathedrals. Take advantage of the low tide to enjoy the rock formations made by the erosion of the sea. This is one of the most beautiful enclaves of Galicia!

Excellent experience, a full day with two first class guides María and Antón who accompanied us at all times with their explanations, in the visit to the center of Burgos with Antón it was extraordinary with their detailed and entertaining explanations that enriched us with their more than enough knowledge . Also say that the day accompanied throughout the Tour.

Let's see ... The beach of the cathedrals is divine, but it has made us a horrible day (gale, rain, cold) although it was worth it, since we were already aware, and entered the pools. For those who go on this date: Long sleeves, long pants, rain poncho, umbrellas (better the poncho because the other thing flies), and even if it sounds funny, some socks and if they have spare sneakers, the better. I'm done with my feet full of water and ice cream. There are considerable puddles, which you must get into to keep moving forward. Lugo has been boring, bland ... A waste of time, in a word, just like Ribadeo, neither chicha, nor lemonade. Two hours one way / two hours back is worth it for the beach, but not for the rest. I think that a tour with only the beaches would be much better. I would pay the same. Maria, our guide, very nice, attentive, and trained. And José, the very friendly driver.
