A definite must when you are in Vigo, amazing views and very peaceful. Bit of a climb but not too bad, you can have a rest when you get to the top and enjoy the peace and silence and hopefully some sunshine,

Probably, but you have to climb in order to get to the park. The park is at the top of a hill.

Monte del Castro is a park centred on the peak of a steep hill - from base to top a good half hour if you are moderately fit. Actually not that scenic either. Vigo seems more of a working city than for non-native day... More
