Buses make it easy to reach Lugo, putting one of the most appealing cities in north-western Spain within easy reach. Buses offer excellent connections to cities like Madrid, Santiago de Compostela, Burgos, and even Oporto in Portugal. Arrival is usually hassle-free, thanks to the centrally located main bus station.
Almost all buses to the city terminate at the Estacion Autobuses Urbanos de Lugo. The bus station can be found on the Plaza de la Constitucion, a few hundred yards south of the historic center, so there's no need to catch a bus or take a taxi to reach local attractions. Walking will take 10 minutes or less.
Alsa is the dominant player and operates all services to Lugo. Providing comfortable seating, onboard entertainment, and complimentary WiFi, Alsa's buses ensure an enjoyable ride from plenty of locations in north-west Spain. Customers can choose from standard Alsa buses and Supra fares, which add extra leg-room and VIP waiting areas.
Taking the bus is often the best route to Lugo and there are a number of reasons for this. Firstly, Alsa's services are reliable and cover a huge range of cities. So, whether travelers are staying in Oviedo, Santiago de Compostela, or A Coruna, they can reach Lugo easily - and they won't need to change at any stage. There's no airport in Lugo's immediate neighborhood, either. This means that those coming from outside Spain will require buses to transfer from Madrid Barajas or other entry points. Finally, Galicia has some beautiful scenery, and there's no better way to savor it than in a comfortable Alsa coach.
As long as visitors get hold of a map or the right travel apps, most of the city's attractions can be reached on foot in 15-20 minutes from the city center. Tracing the walls is a popular starting point. Standing since Roman times, they offer access to standout attractions like the Roman Baths or the Romanesque cathedral. And don't miss out on Galician cuisine. Salty Padron peppers, grilled octopus, and steamed mussels are all on the menu and there are plenty of wonderful tapas bars in the center of town.
