Monte de O Castro

Where it all began.

Monte de O Castro is well loved by the locals of Vigo. Not far from the sea and at the centre of the city, this is one of Vigo's largest parks, offering breath-taking 360⁰ views. Brimming with greenery and maintained to a remarkable standard, the Monte de O Castro park can be reached by car or by foot. We strongly recommend the second option, stopping along the way to enjoy the delights of the city and the sea. The importance of this place lies in it being the very origins of Vigo. The site of this ancient settlement dates back to between the 3rd and the 1st century BC and can be visited within the park. You could also seek out the huge anchors of the Monument to the Rande Galleons, which commemorates the ships that were sunk during this famous 18th-century battle.
