Rebuilt after damage occured during the Second World War makes it a mix of history and a modern structure with a lovely view over the river Maas. Nice place for a day out with the family. It's definitely worth a visit.

Visited for a professional event. It was a nice location with scenic overlook over the maas, and nice facilities to have a party. An old castle with a modern twist.

I really love this spot! We had our wedding there and it was just perfect! The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. No wishes remain open. The architecture between new and old makes this place unique.

Interesting castle which has been recently renovated. Interesting because the old part has been built on top by modern architecture which makes it different from normal renovations. You are able to walk around the exterior and gardens for free. We paid 7€ each to walk around the interior which is also has a cafe in the inner most part of the museum with full 360 views inside and outside at higher levels overlooking the river and church neighbouring the castle . You can take a lift to the higher levels and we spent about 1/2 hour inside.

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.
