The nearby Iglesia de San Telmo is in Baroque style and the Gothic Iglesia de Santo Domingo has some attractive cloisters worth visiting.
The main square of Tui has a Tourist Information cabin and has some attractive typically Galician buildings as well as a bandstand.
Tui is on the Portugese route of the Camino de Compostela, the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela.
