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
Monte del Castro is just one of many things to see in Vigo but is well worth the climb. It’s not that strenuous really and you can take a cab. But if you ave a sense of history the climb up lets your imagination wander...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
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.
Walked up here from the old town , if you walk up the street past Puerto Gamboa hotel there are "moving stairs" for the first part of the walk . It is not too much of a Trek but for older people it would be...More
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
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,

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
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 tourists. There is a maritime museum, but it is a long way from the station, albeit it is then close to a nice promenade. Just walking the streets was interesting - we walked and even worked out some bus routes. There is a shellfish area just up from the port - entertaining.
