Staying just across the Portuguese northern border, Tui is a city where I passed a couple of times, only seeing the border of the river, and shops lined in the road.
One day, I went to dance in Tui, and, using a break in the program I went out to see the city.
The time was short, but enough to have a general idea.
Generally, the central square in most European small towns concentrate the best that the city has to show.
That is not the case, where the centre is discrete with the highlights dispersed around it.
The cathedral, city hall and other are near, but the dominant image if the square is a band stand.
And many nice houses around it, we may concede!
San Francisco church
At the entrance of Trancoso gardens, in Paseo de la Corredera there's a statue known as "Glorieta de Vigo" I don't know why.
It was made by Juan Oliveira, the creator of a famous statue located in Plaza de España... Vigo.
That may be the reason, but the real name of the statue is Monument to the Wild Horse.
