Constructed in the 3rd century, the Roman wall of Lugo is one of the best preserved Roman remains anywhere.
The walls encircle the city of Lugo, Spain and stretch for just over two km. Almost 100 towers survive, along with five original city gates. A moat and a wide area of cleared ground added to the town's defences.
The walls vary in height from 8 to 12 meters, and walking along the fortification provides constantly changing views of the city.
Lugo itself is also worth visiting for its 12th century cathedral, the 18th century city hall and the convent of St. Francis.Places nearby:
