Information of A Coruña
La Coruña is a modern city in Galicia overlooking the sea. The variety of traditions, gastronomy and landscapes will not leave you indifferent.
From the headlands this beautiful city is a balcony overlooking the Atlantic with two thousand years of history behind and always guarded by the magnificent Tower of Hercules, still in operation and declared a World Heritage Site. The legend says that Hercules buried the head of Geryon, the giant, in this place.
The heart of La Coruña is the Square of Maria Pita. In the centre of the old town is the square which has a calm beauty with granite on the pavement and white galleries on the facades. Maria Pita was the heroine from Coruña, who was distinguished for her courage defending the city against the British in an old battle. The promenade passes by the square and must be visited slowly, admiring the galleries here too and those large windows that let the light go inside the houses so typical of the Galician cities.
La Coruña is divided in two different areas, the old town, where you will find the main monuments, and the modern city, the widening, with spectacular buildings that will show you the splendour of economy, mainly based on services and trade through such an active port.
The walks in La Coruña can last hours. Visit the Museum of Man and the Riazor Beach. Go around the peninsula where the Tower of Hercules is and breathe the healthy air of the Galician Ocean, iodine and fresh as the algae that inhabit it and the waves that break on the coast. Walk around the humid streets of the historic centre, having tapas and drinking the rich white wines of the earth.
