How to get to Vigo
Why not make your visit to Vigo more relaxing by taking the ferry from Cangas to Vigo and leaving the car? You will sail up the historic Vigo estuary – one of the most important fishing ports in Spain – and take in all the sights of the old Spanish city from the water before disembarking at the Estación Marítima, where you can take a leisurely stroll through the historic port area and then on up through the Casco Vello, or Old Town.
A creative way to do this is to arrive by boat. As much as you might love good cars and driving, you can get a boat from Cangas to add to the richness of the experience. Ferries leave very regularly – with the price under 5 euros for return and the trip just takes about 20minutes. Besides the cheap and easy trip, you will be able to experience Vigo from a new angle.
You will stumble across a wealth of quaint bars and restaurants throughout the Old Town that serve up delicious local dishes such as Cocido Gallego – Galician Stew – and Tarta de Santiago – Santiago Cake. And why not wash these delicacies down with a taste of the local drink, Orujo de Galicia, also known as ‘aguardiente’ or ‘firewater’ – a high alcohol drink made of cherries and grape skins.
