Lugo is known for its almost completely preserved Roman city walls. The Romans built the bulwark in the 3rd century AD to protect the city of Lucus Augusti from the Germanic tribes. The walls are part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Out of 85 towers, 50 are still preserved. The wall is about 2 km long and you can walk on it. Pilgrims leave the city through the Portal Santiago. There St. James is depicted as a Moorish slayer.
