The historic part of Vigo used to be the crappiest place in town, the place where all druggies and prostitutes used to go around. In the last years all that area has been rebuilt and cleaned and loads of nice bars (some brewing their own beer), art shops, coffee shops, health/veggy shops, etc... have mushroomed all over the place.

Like most I guess you will arrive here on a cruise ship. Totally amazed by the old town area although as like the rest of Spain don't rush to go ashore to early as nothing happens until 11.00am. Love Vigo

Unexpectedly, whilst on a cruise we ended up in Vigo for a few hours. It is very hilly, but within a few yards there is a very modern shopping building, so if you go in the front door using escalators or lifts you can walk out more or less in the old town. The shops themselves are interesting and include... More

Visited whilst on a cruise ship. The ship virtually docked in the town centre. Couple of minutes walk all up hill!! Came upon the town square with lots of shops and bars. Nice quaint Spanish town.

We spend about three hours walking around the old town. Lots of small interesting shops and cafes. Good for shopping as there are many shops, and for people watching and viewing the quaint and old architecture. The tourism office is another area to visit if you are coming off the ship for a day in town. Wifi is present and... More

We only had 5 hours in port so we just walked around town by starting with the waterfront and then strolling in the Casco Vello. There are many restaurants in the area near the modern shopping mall by the waterfront but we were full after stuffing ourselves with fresh bread and empanadas from a local bakery called Panaderia Torresanta off...

We enjoyed our guided tour through the old historic part of Vigo. There was lots going on including women sewing in the town square.

It's such a lovely place to walk around and browse in all the shops and see what's on offer in the restaurants. Very quaint place with lovely buildings. A nice way to spend a couple of hours
