The Cathedral Beach ... just hearing its name promises! Nature and monumentality complement each other in this impressive natural area of Galicia. Are you going to miss it? Our Cathedral Beach day trip will take you to visit this popular enclave. In addition, we will take a tour of the city of Ribadeo and Lugo, where we will see the remains of its Roman wall, in very good condition.

Leaving Santiago de Compostela, our first stop will be in the city of Lugo. Accompanied by the guide, we will make a visit of an hour and a half through the historic center, where we will see up close its Roman walls, declared World Heritage Site in the year 2000.

We will discover the Roman past of Lugo passing through the thermal baths and the Roman bridge. We will also see the Cathedral from the outside, which houses to The Virgin of the Big Eyes, the patron saint of the city.

Then we will go to Ribadeo, a beautiful fishing village, where we will marvel at its fascinating natural environment, its history and the best of Galician gastronomy.

Our next destination will be the majestic Playa de Aguas Santas, popularly known as Playa de las Catedrales (Cathedral Beach). Its arches over 30 meters in height are reminiscent of those we see in churches, hence its name.

Taking advantage of the low tide, we can walk through the fine sand, passing between impressive rock formations in the form of caves, labyrinths and arches. As we walk, we will listen to the relaxing sound of the ocean waves crashing against the rocks. An unforgettable experience!

After taking souvenir photos and enjoying this place of incredible beauty, we will return to Santiago de Compostela.

"Los guías estuvieron muy bien. "
Creo que el tiempo en la playa de Las Catedrales es poco y que el recorrido por Lugo bien se podría suprimir pues apenas da tiempo a ver nada.
