Vigo's old district is not as expansive as some of Galicia's other historic quarters, but it does cover an interesting area on the slopes above the marina. High points of this zone are a number of beautiful plazas along with buildings and streets that have survived from the medieval period and show the humble beginnings of the original settlement. This old district is one of the most underrated in Galicia.
Vigo's history and heritage though is not only confined to the old quarter. The greater city has many stunning examples of civic architecture dotted around its center and there are a number of squares and parks that have great tourist appeal.
