Vigo is Galicia's industrial powerhouse. PSA Peugeot Citroen has its main headquarters in the city, producing up to 500,000 vehicles – mainly for export – little wonder that it is often described as 'the pillar of the Galician economy.'

Tourism is becoming one of the fastest growing industries in Vigo, where the emphasis is on unspoilt rural tourism.
