What you'll do
Vigo, a large industrial city in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula, close to a border and with a strong, open and cosmopolitan character, typical of large port cities, has been and continues to be a reference in the world of art and cultural movements. At the beginning of the experience we will make a small introduction of the city where we will deal with these and other topics that will surely surprise you. We'll talk about the role of Vigo as one of the axis of "La Movida", the most important Spanish cultural movement that took place in the 80's and other amazing stories that make up the recent history of this Atlantic metropolis always at the forefront of arts and industry. We'll review all this together to better understand everything what we are going to see next. We will make numerous stops to see selected pieces of the best of the local street art and purest graffiti. By talking about them we we'll learn how to identify the different disciplines that exist. We'll see "site specific" works, signatures, and many surprises, some truly amazing and unexpected! In the middle of the route we will take a break to drink something in one of the most mythical taverns where the most iconic cutural and artistic characters used to meet.
Vigo and its history are one of my great passions. Since 3 years ago I share all my knowledge and tips to enjoy the city ans its bay to the fullest in a cultural walking tour of great success. Living for 14 years in places like Madrid, London, Australia, Santiago or the Mediterranean coast, gave me a global perspective necessary to better understand and appreciate everything to its best. I always share this knowledge with passion, from the eyes of a local expert. I also have an entrepreneurial spirit, so typical of Vigo, and I like to create new routes by linking stories and events. So now, I'm putting together all that local experience and accumulated knowledge with one of my other great passions: street art.
Half way we'll have a break to comment everything and refresh ourselves to continue the second part of the route. You will be…
