To help you create your album, we have selected 10 unmissable places to take a selfie to share with the world.
2.- The Olive Tree at Paseo de Alfonso: Don’t forget to snap yourself by Vigo’s most famous tree, a symbol of the love and loyalty of the people to their city and part of its coat of arms.
3.- Monument to Jules Verne: It’s impossible to resist taking a photo hugging our most international literary ambassador or getting between the tentacles of the giant squid the sculpture sits on.
4.- Quiñones de León mansion: Feel like a marquis or marquise for a day at the gates of this 17th century Noble Mansionhouse, whose walls and gardens have witnessed centuries of our history.
5.- El Sireno: This is Vigo’s monument par excellence. It is the cross between a fish and a man that constantly looks out over the sea from the city centre. At 13m tall, you can shoot it at as many angles as you can imagine.
6.- Museum of the Sea Lighthouse: Located at the end of the breakwater at the Galician Museum of the Sea, with the sea and the Cies Islands as a backdrop. And if you happen to catch the sunset, you’ll have a photo that’s worth framing.
7.- A Guía viewpoint: This viewpoint is presided over by the chapel of Our Lady of the Snows and the whole area is an impressive natural enclave to take your snaps from.
8.- The Oyster Mongers of A Pedra: Tasting this prized mollusc is an unmissable ritual in Vigo. So you can’t leave without visiting the street called Pescadería and take away with you a souvenir photo with these expert oyster openers.
9.- The octopus of the Paseo de los Peces in Bouzas: A one-kilometre-long seaside walk through Vigo’s most seafaring neighbourhood among sculptures of fish, molluscs and our favourite cephalopod – the octopus! You can’t help getting your camera out.
10.- Dinoseto: This bushy tyrannosaurus is now so famous that it has its own photo-call. And even though it’s the kids’ favourite, grownups can’t resist taking a picture of themselves with what is known as the king of the selfie in Vigo.
