A CITY in Spain is becoming more popular with Brits – and flights to get there are super cheap.
The fishing port is just a few hours from the UKand some say it has the best seafood in all of the country.
Vigo sits on an inlet of the Atlantic on the country’s northwest coast.
As the largest city of Galicia, Vigo boasts a charming old town, botanical gardens, and is surrounded by lush green landscapes, which makes it a great shout for those who enjoy the great outdoors.
It's a great place for an autumn break as temperatures remain above 20C even after the summer.
And it's just a 45-minute ferry journey to the Cies Islands – which has some of the best beaches in Spain.

When it comes to eating, Vigo has plenty to offer thanks to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, which provides access to some of the freshest seafood in Spain.
It’s particularly famous for dishes like "pulpo a la gallega" (Galician-style octopus) and various types of seafood stews and grilled fish.
The city is also a gateway to some exceptional world-class restaurants having over 20 Michelin-starred restaurants within a 120-mile radius.
There’s also the Vialia Vigo Hub, a striking modern shopping centre and railway station designed by the American architect Thom Mayne, which opened in 2021 and overlooks the city’s estuary.
