There are picturesque squares and streets with other important civil and religious buildings, but one of Lugo's other fames is food. The Galician's having a saying which literally means to eat, go to Lugo. It is great for traditional Galician food particularly pulpo - octupus and the tapas bars on Calle Cruz and Rúa Nova are full of atmosphere in the early evening.

There are all sorts of culinary delights and street stalls selling traditional Galician products and bubbling copper cauldrons of octupus, combining an exceptional meeting point between the urban and rural worlds.
