The Lugo province of Galicia!!

This is a memorable road warrior trip a while back and only had glimpses of it mix in other posts. I decided to do one for them deservingly so for Lugo and Sarria, all in the Lugo province of the autonomous community of Galicia in the kingdom of Spain. Let me tell you a bit about it ok.

I took a car trip to  Lugo, not much time there just passing city center for a quick look, One of my road warrior trips ,and always looking to be back.  Lugo is the capital of the province of Lugo, in the autonomous community of Galicia. It is located about 100 km from the Costa Verde on the Bay of Biscay. The city is known for the ramparts that surround the city, a well-preserved remnant of Roman civilization dating from the 3C. Madrid is 500 km away,

On my way to Lugo we passed by Sarria. A nice detour in my road warrior trip of the province of Lugo.

The city was founded by Alfonso IX under the name of Vilanova de Sarriá (new town of Sarrià).  The passage of the Way of Santiago de Compostela through the village has favored the construction of numerous ecclesiastical constructions and, from its medieval past, it preserves various examples of civil and military architecture. You have to visit the castle, the convent of La Magdalena, the churches of Santa Mariña and El Salvador and, why not, take a look at the objects sold by the many local antique dealers.
