Just off the A6 freeway, Galicia's oldest provincial capital is most notable for its 2-km (1½-mile) Roman wall. These beautifully preserved ramparts completely surround the streets of the old town. The walkway on top has good views. The Baroque Ayuntamiento has a magnificent rococo facade overlooking the tree-lined Praza Maior (Plaza Mayor). There's a good view of the Río Miño valley from the Parque Rosalía de Castro, outside the Roman walls near the cathedral, which is a mixture of Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, and neoclassical styles.
This collection of gorgeous prints, plates, pillows, and more make great gifts for anyone who wants to add some serious wanderlust to their daily life.More
