Visit Tui, Spain

Tui sits above the river Minho opposite the town of Valenca de Minho on the other side of the river in Portugal. There is an iron bridge crossing the river here which was designed by Eiffel. There is no passport control and so you can just drive or walk across.

Tui's streets wind up towards its hilltop cathedral, once part of Tui's defences from the Portugese. Regular skirmishes between the two countries took place throughout the middle ages and the 13th century cathedral has defensive towers and battlements!

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.
