An authentic taste of Spain and local life

Vigo is a beautiful town located in the region of Galicia, the ‘green heart’ of Spain, located on the northeast coast.

MSC Cruises guests visiting Vigo will delight in finding an area that is un-crowded, where they can experience an authentic taste of Spain and local life.

Once your MSC cruise ship has docked, you will find easy access to the town itself. Leave the ship and stroll along the waterfront, where the old town, with its narrow cobbled streets will soon reveal its charms to you.

Of particular note is the Ribera del Berbes fishing quarter, which dates from the mid-17th century. There are many sights to see in and around Vigo, and cruise passengers that choose to join us on one of our day trip packages will benefit from the best deals on attractions here.

Make the most of your Mediterranean cruise vacation and explore further afield – the mythical town of Santiago de Compostela, a UNESCO heritage site, is a coach ride away.

Alternatively, take the opportunity to immerse yourself in Galician culture by visiting two special villages in the region, Pontevedra and Combarro – a small and picturesque fishing village. With guided tours for both villages, you will soon learn about the history and sights. Finally, some passengers may like to maximize their vacation time and cross the border into Portugal, to the 17th century fortified town of Valença do Minho.

So much to do, but for once, plenty of time!

Port average temperature

Vigo's climate is usually classified as oceanic, however, the summers tend to be warmer and the winters milder than most areas of similar classification. Substantial rainfall throughout the year prevents it from being classified as a Mediterranean climate, even though there is a drying trend in summer.

The average annual temperature in Vigo is 15°C. Compared many other Galician towns, Vigo experiences warmer summer temperatures and milder winters. This is due to its sheltered location, surrounded by mountains inland and the Illas Cíes out in the bay towards the sea.

The temperate figures shown are based on monthly average weather conditions for the selected port. Weather data is not real-time, and sometimes no data is shown for a specific date, month or port in general.
