Details of Vigo and the Ticket Luck value
The beautiful city of Vigo of Spain located in the Galician community. It is the biggest city of Galicia, Spain which is yet another autonomous community like Valencia. Just like the Valencians, Galicians are considered to be a nation. It is said to be part of one of the earliest European Kingdoms. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the West whereas the Cantaberic Sea lies in the North. Lugo, A Coru?a, Pontevedra and Ourense are its provinces. It is the province of Pontevedra where the city of Vigo is located. Interestingly enough, out of the total population of 943,117, only 80,749 live in the capital city of Pontevedra. Which is why, Vigo ends up being the largest city of the province and yet it is not the capital. The total area of the city of Vigo is 109.1 km square. And it has a population of about 295,703 as per the 2008 stats, making it a bigger city than the capital, and the biggest in the whole province. The climate of the city is said to be oceanic climate because the city of Vigo is a coastal city. Even though the estimated temperature of the year isn't any higher than 15 ?C, the city is special as unlike any place else of the region, the summers of Vigo are hotter and winters pleasantly mild. That is due to the fact that the city is protected by the Islas Cies which surround it.
The area where the city is located now has been the subject of the wrath of the Vikings. Since it was included in the town of Tui, Vikings attacked it repeatedly. Vigo wasn't considered a city until the fifteenth century due to such a small population. When the population of the city increase and it was finally considered to be a town, by the 16th as well as 17th Century, it was repeatedly attacked. The city came under occupation of Francis Drake's armies but that turned out to be only temporary. Like any other traditional departure of the conqueror from a city, Drake gave it the gift of fire. It left the down bereft of many precious buildings. The walls around the city, which were built in 1656, served the purposes of thwarted Turk attacks. As the ruminants of Felipe IV's reign, these walls still stand and are well preserved. In 1719, English captured the city but this too turned out to be temporary. Under the rule of Napoleon, France annexed Spain in 1808.Reconquista is the celebration of its freedom from the French rule, as it was one of the first cities to be free of occupation. Nineteenth and the 20th centuries brought prosperity to the people and city's population grew rapidly.
With many fairs and festivals, every year in Vigo is a happy year. Reconquista is celebrated annually on the 28th March. It is the independence celebrations of the city. 'A movida viguesa' which was a cultural movement during the times of Francisco Franco, brought some of the most skilled artists to limelight. Os Resentidos, Siniestro Total and Aerolineas Federales were some of the most notable artists of that time. The city is still home to Iv?n Ferreiro, which is the local band. In terms of football, the opportunities in the city are unmatched. There are several local football teams. The local football stadium hosted a few FIFA World Cup matches in 1982. R?as Baixas is the local facility for training professional and amateur sailors. All in all it is a sports loving, fun city which you have got to check out for yourself. Get your Vigo Tickets today!
