Rua do Principe

Vigo's main commercial thoroughfare, Rua do Principe (and the street it eventually merges with, Rua Urzaiz), is lined with all manner of shops and boutiques, primarily vending international brand clothing. There are quite a few cafes and eateries here, and the Modern Art Museum in the way of attractions.


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.
