Emblematic buildings

Vigo’s architectural heritage is unique and diverse. There are examples of very interesting religious architecture: each parish has a remarkable church, and the Colegiata, the city’s main church, is in the centre of Vigo, where you’ll hear the toll of its bells marking each hour.

The city’s civilian heritage is just as impressive: Vigo's historic buildings are scattered throughout the neighbourhoods, but we recommend you follow one of our Architecture Walks to not miss any of the most characteristic.

In this section, we’ll give you a few examples of Vigo’s emblematic buildings, religious and civilian, but there’s more information regarding the city’s architecture on the Vigo Town Council’s official website, specifically on historic buildings and churches and chapels.
