the carlsberg brewery experience is something else. i cant recommend it enough as it was an eye opening experience. it was great to know the history of the brand and see for yourself a century worth of brewery. it was also amazing to see their historic bottles that was in their glass doors. they do explain the beer making prpcedurw and finish off with a tasting of different kinds of beer

We visited Carlsberg and Store. Was good walking around the brewery, interesting to see the past and present and taste the different beers and purchase in the store. It worth to anyone who does like beer and interested in the how it's made.

This was a disappointment. We were visiting the Christmas market, but it was a soulless thing that could have happened anywhere. Better to stay in the city centre. Even the souvenir shop was dull and boring, filled up with Carlsberg merchandise. The stable was charming though. Really nice horses, and the buildings are truly filled with atmosphere, so the place has potential. It's just poorly executed.

The Historical Tour was interesting, but the tour guide spoke a bit too quickly and there was absolutely no mention of the brewing process. In fact, there doesn't seem to be any option available for how their beer is made. HOWEVER, the Beer Tasting was extremely informative, and the guide was both knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. He customised the tasting to the interests of the group, and we actually left with extra beer in-hand! Be prepared to drink at least 2 pints per person. Overall, a pleasant experience.

Nice facilities. The tour was pleasant. The beer tasting was fun and Kian gave us a nice run though for the last time until the tours close for a year.

Roman Walls of Lugo

Roman Walls of Lugo are an exceptional architectural, archaeological and constructive legacy of Roman engineering, dating from the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. The Walls are built of internal and external stone facings of slate with some granite, with a core filling of a conglomerate of slate slabs and worked stone pieces from Roman buildings, interlocked with lime mortar.

Their total length of 2117 m in the shape of an oblong rectangle occupies an area of 1.68 ha. Their height varies between 8 and 10 m, with a width of 4.2 m, reaching 7 m in some specific points. The walls still contain 85 external towers, 10 gates (five of which are original and five that were opened in modern times), four staircases and two ramps providing access to the walkway along the top of the walls, one of which is internal and the other external. Each tower contained access stairs leading from the intervallum to the wall walk of town wall, of which a total of 21 have been discovered to date.

The defences of Lugo are the most complete and best preserved example of Roman military architecture in the Western Roman Empire.

Despite the renovation work carried out, the walls conserve their original layout and the construction features associated with their defensive purpose, with walls, battlements, towers, fortifications, both modern and original gates and stairways, and a moat.

Since they were built, the walls have defined the layout and growth of the city, which was declared a Historical-Artistic Ensemble in 1973, forming a part of it and becoming an emblematic structure that can be freely accessed to walk along. The local inhabitants and visitors alike have used them as an area for enjoyment and as a part of urban life for centuries.

The fortifications were added to UNESCO"s World Heritage List in late 2000 and are a popular tourist attraction.
