Although within the city one will not find much Romanesque architecture, it can be seen a few kilometers away from the city center. In many of the municipality's neighborhoods and parishes a large number of Roman ruins remain. Such is the importance of the Roman remains in Vigo that many Spanish authors have come to coin the term ''Romanesque Vigo'' (''románico vigués'' in Spanish). Vigo retains some interesting examples of Romanesque churches in southern Galicia: wikipedia:Vigo Commons:Vigo
