O Calvario

The shopping district of O Calvario retains some of its old-time atmosphere, with many of its streets pedestrian-only. The area is populated by multiple traditional shops and eateries, and is home to the O Calvario Market, a long-time locals' favourite for produce shopping.


Basket-weaving has a long tradition in Vigo, and the craft is still kept alive by locals (Cesteiros is a street where basket weavers once lived; craftsmen of today showcase and sell their work here, too). Woodwork, ceramics, and precious metal jewellery are some of the arts still fostered and propelled in Vigo, and modern takes on ancient forms often make for very stylish designs.
