Very few capitals can boast, as Lugo does, of being home to three World Heritage Sites. The Roman Wall, built in the 2nd century, the Cathedral and the crossing of the Primitive Way to Santiago, give the city a unique personality and a historic, cultural attraction that is difficult to surpass as the venue for meetings and events of any kind. With nearly 100,000 inhabitants, Lugo is also the gateway to the great natural attractions of the Galician mountains and the Ribeira Sacra.
The city has 2,000 hotel beds and a modern exhibition site with multiple configuration options, created specifically to accommodate larger meetings. Its infrastructures, together with art, history, gastronomy and a carefully looked after historic quarter, guarantee the success of any event planned in this thousand year old capital, the symbol of rural Galicia but also of the great vitality of a capital in continuous movement.
An interesting network of museums focused on its historical heritage; a peaceful stroll through the streets and squares surrounded by traditional Galician granite buildings; the tasting of Galician wines accompanied by varied, creative tapas, are some of the many attractions that are offered to organisers by this quiet, welcoming city that lends itself to host small and large sized meetings.
The city is well connected by motorway with the other Galician capitals; near the airports of Santiago and A Coruña; and close to the spectacular Atlantic coasts or some of the main Galician mountain ranges.
