Wonderful scenic walk. Easy, well maintained, flat route around the base of the castle. Lots of great views, places to linger, sit and enjoy the views and history.

Relaxing walk on Monday morning with some clouds and the wind from the ocean bringing salty air inland. Old walls from one side and kilometers of open sea in the other. The atmosphere is of complete relax. Recommended.

This entire area outside of Vigo is absolutely spectacular. The Atlantic Ocean meets the coast of Spain with beautiful rock formations, an old castle (now a beautiful hotel) and a great walking path. Very impressive.

This is a must see in Baiona! Walk around the tops of the wall and around the base. Such great views and you can get a coffee at the Parador too. Take your camera!

We were staying at the Parador and did a couple of walks around the Fort. You can do the high walk along the wall, or the low walk closer to the sea. Both are worthwhile with interesting points of interest and awesome views.

Excellent place for a walk with stunning view over the cies islands and the marina. However in some areas it was quite dirty and the smell was terrible. Perfect spot for photos

Some of the reviews here are confusing. That is because what was once an ancient fort is now a luxury hotel called the Parador. We are staying there and it is wonderful. But imagine that all the walls, towers, turrets and amazing walks and settings...More

nice walk of about 30 to 45 minutes (that is without visiting the inner field with the hotel etc). Good way also to discover some beaches in Baiona one doesn't necessary see from the street
