Went as part of a coach tour. The steps to the view on the left were definitely hard to get up and even harder to get down. However the view you get is well worth the effort, particularly on a blue sky day. This stop...More

It's a long walk uphill, but worth it. Beautiful views of Vigo when you get to the top. It was nice to walk around and enjoy the fresh breeze. If you are too tired to walk down, ask the cafe to call you a taxi...More

Agree with other reviews. This is a nice way to spend a few hours ehilst in Vigo. The views were excellent and there is even a cafe where you can stop for a well earned cerveza. Not to be missed

Worth the "climb", recommend with clear weather even though with rainy weather is the truest way to experience Galicia. Great views of the city and surrounding areas and just a pleasant park in itself.

This is a good 30 minute uphill walk from the port (old town) to the top. The views are good and there are some nice gardens. If you didn’t want to walk it could be a good idea to get a taxi up and walk...More

We climbed to the top and enjoyed spectacular views of the Vigo area. Interesting perspective and worth every step.

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,

An absolutely amazing park with incredible views of the Ria De Vigo. The magnolia trees are the biggest I've seen. Unfortunately we visited on a rainy day and couldn't enjoy it as it deserved.

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
