Vigo is a city associated with the sea. The sea has marked its origins, its history and its economy. Vigo is a genuinely cosmopolitan city and the most populated in Galicia. Vigo also is entrepreneurial in spirit, with a great social life, giving rise to cultural and social trends that later spread to the rest of Galician as a whole.

Vigo's existence as a city is recent, as even well into the 19th century it was just another of the many sea ports that lay along the ria shores, but the origins of Vigo dates back into the mists of time. Within its mountainous frontiers Vigo comprises over thirty Megalithic monuments.

The old quarters in Vigo are small but very attractive and now undergoing refurbishment. A highlight Vigo is El Berbés district: a stepped ensemble of old fishermen's and craftsmen's houses and back streets running down from the city centre towards the sea. A key sight in this area of Vigo is the A Pedra Market. Around the urban area Vigo conserves major historical sites of great beauty like the hills of O Castro and A Guía. Both are excellent viewpoints overlooking the city.
