Among beaches and archaeological sites
Coruxo is a neighbourhood along the coast dotted with beaches, a paradise the Romans turned into a residential area. Its forest park offers some of the most spectacular views of the Vigo Estuary. Furthermore, if you’re on O Vao beach, you can cross over bridge, where there is always someone fishing, to explore Toralla Island and swim in the only beach in Vigo that faces south.
If you’re a mountain biking enthusiast, the mountains of Coruxo are ideal for a good workout. This neighbourhood often hosts an important international tournament.
Visit its 12th century Romanesque church, which still preserves its ancient skylights. Also, don’t forget that you are in an area full of archaeological remains: the petroglyphs of Fragoselo and Castiñeirón, among others.
In June, the parish holds its main festivities in the land bordering the beautiful chapel of San Sebastián; and mid July is the time for the Virgen del Carmen festivities in the chapel of Vao.
