A neighbourhood with heaps of character and a large shopping area spread over pedestrian streets.
The heart and soul of Vigo.
If you want to try and blend in with the locals, this is definitely your best bet. This traditional working-class neighbourhood in the northwest of the city, next to the train and bus stations, is home to one of the largest shopping areas in Vigo. Totally pedestrianised and all in the open air, you'll be surprised by the peaceful, relaxed atmosphere and the traditional market, established in 1920 and seen as one of the treasures of the city. O Calvario has every kind of shop you could image: clothes, pharmacies, bazaars, jewellers, shoe shops and a large collection of traditional bars with a real sense of timeless charm. Nearby, you'll find the church of the Immaculate Conception (Iglesia de la Inmaculada Concepción) which is also known and "the church of the peaks" for its peculiar design.
