Discover the famous Beach of the Cathedrals, and its impressive rock shapes, with this fantastic trip from Santiago. You will also visit enchanting Lugo!
Lugo and Beach of the Cathedrals Trip
We will meet up at the Plaza de Galicia square and leave Santiago de Compostela behind to head north-east.
After an enjoyable road journey, we will arrive at the city of Lugo, very famous for its walls, which have been perfectly preserved. Once there, we will take a guided tour of the historical center for an hour and a half. Among the most emblematic monuments of the town is the cathedral of Santa María, a UNESCO World Heritage Site whose construction took more than a century.
Of course, we will also visit the Roman wall, which surrounds the old town and is more than 7000 feet long. It is one of the best-preserved Roman walls in the Iberian Peninsula. At the end of the visit, we will leave you an hour and a half of free time so that you can try the local cuisine and finish exploring Lugo at your own pace.
After the tour of Lugo, we will go to the second part of the excursion: the amazing beach of Aguas Santas, commonly known as the Cathedrals beach. It has this name due to the rocky forms of the fine white sand which evoke the flying buttresses of Gothic shrines.
We will enjoy a walk around this place taking advantage of the low tide to sneak under the arches, which are more than 100 feet high. As you stroll along the beach you will be struck by the sound of the waves crashing against these stone giants. Its beauty has earned it the official status of a Natural Monument and it is considered to be one of best beaches in Europe.
After this visit, we will return to the bus and go back to the original starting point in Santiago de Compostela where the excursion concludes.
The starting time of the tour depends on the tides. We will contact you to confirm the exact departure time for your activity. Please be at the meeting point at least ten minutes in advance.
