Brief note on the history of the city.

The oldest remains of Vigo that are preserved data from the Stone Age and are preserved in the Quiñones de León Museum.

Funeral buildings or burial mounds are preserved from the Neolithic. From the II and II centuries before Christ, designs are preserved in rocks or Petroglyphs mostly of weapons and animals of the time. From the age of Hierro until the 1st century after Christ, many Castros or houses of the ancient inhabitants are preserved and rebuilt either on the slope of the Castro de Vigo park or on the Vao beach.

From the Romanesque churches such as Santiago de Vigo, Santiago de Bembibre or Santa Maria de Castrelos are preserved. The bridges of Sardoma and Fragoso are of medieval times.

Despite the incursions into the city and theft of pirates such as Sir Frances Drake and other pirates from Turkey, the city continues to grow and prosper.

In the eighteenth century the battle of Rande occurs during the war of Spanish Succession. Of which it is said according to legend that numerous treasures were submerged under the Vigo estuary.

In 1943 a new historical milestone occurs in the city of Bayonne, a city near Vigo (just 18 km.) And it is that the caravel of Vicente Yañez Pinzón arrives in Bayonne after the discovery of America. What today is commemorated in the "Festival of National Tourist Interest: La Arribada".

On March 8, 1804 the inhabitants of Vigo reconquered the city to the Napoleonic troops, a fact that is celebrated every year at the Fiesta and is represented at the "Fiesta de La Reconquista".

Nowadays, in addition to being able to visit the monuments, parks and beaches of the city, parties such as Christmas have become important because of the spectacular lights that mainly adorn the city center. It also highlights the exhibition of international urban sport "O Marisquiño" held in August. Or various events and concerts held in Castrelos in summer and in IFEVI throughout the year.

In sports, the "Vig Bay" race and the "Triathlon Cies Islands" highlight the sporting character of its citizens.

Currently, the Cies Islands of the Ría de Vigo

are candidates for World Heritage and form a natural paradise that should not be visited.
