Date Line: Vigo Spain, Known as Spain’s “Gateway to the Atlantic,” Vigo is steeped in a history that dates back to the Romans. Vikings once saw trade opportunities here and landed briefly on its shores. Soon, Vigo’s strategic importance was recognised throughout Europe, resulting in raids by English privateer Francis Drake and the Turkish fleet. The French, too, occupied the region during the Napoleonic Empire. Today, Vigo is one of the largest cities in Galicia, Spain’s autonomous northwest region that boasts a rich farming and fishing heritage.
