Es bonito, pero es privado y está descuidadísimo. El entorno es especial y la bajada es bonita con el campo y la roca con la casita, pero.. da mucha pena cómo está mantenido, se le podría sacar mucho partido y que fuera un espacio disfrutable. Una pena. Habíamos leído que era un espacio de águilas y tampoco lo vemos un entorno para eso, pero no somos expertos, así que no sabemos ajjaja. Por cierto, nos han sorprendido mucho estas piezas numeradas que había por todos lados, no sabemos su uso y no conseguimos averiguarlo. Os dejo una foto, si alguien sabe qué son y para qué sirven, informádnos! Saludos!

Magnífico lugar. Muy emblemático. Desde el castillo se divisa toda la meseta. Las vistas son espectaculares. Tiene muchos viñedos alrededor. Es un lugar singular. Se puede alquilar para eventos y para pernoctar. Es una experiencia única. Recomendable visitarlo.

Not much to see. Castle is a private residence.

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.
