A Coruña: Where History Meets the Sea

Welcome to A Coruña, a historic coastal city in Galicia, Spain. Nestled on a picturesque peninsula, A Coruña invites you to explore its rich heritage, enjoy its beautiful beaches, and experience its vibrant cultural scene.

Begin your journey at the iconic Tower of Hercules, the oldest Roman lighthouse still in use today and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Climb to the top for breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and the city below. Nearby, explore the serene Parque Escultórico, dotted with intriguing sculptures and scenic walking paths.

Wander through the charming streets of the Ciudad Vieja, A Coruña’s old town. Visit the impressive Iglesia de Santiago, a Romanesque church dating back to the 12th century, and the Casa de María Pita, dedicated to the local heroine who defended the city against invaders.

Stroll along the bustling Marina, lined with the iconic galerías, traditional glass-enclosed balconies that reflect the city’s maritime heritage. Here, you can enjoy a leisurely coffee or a refreshing drink while watching the boats come and go. Explore the nearby Plaza de María Pita, a vibrant square named after the city’s famous defender, and admire the grand Palacio Municipal.

Discover A Coruña’s cultural riches at the Museo de Bellas Artes, showcasing a remarkable collection of Spanish art, including works by Goya and Sorolla. For a taste of contemporary culture, visit the Domus, an interactive museum dedicated to the human body, or the Aquarium Finisterrae, where you can learn about the marine life of the Atlantic Ocean.

Savor the culinary delights of A Coruña at its traditional taverns and seafood restaurants, where you can enjoy dishes such as caldeirada (Galician fish stew), percebes (goose barnacles), and lacón con grelos (pork with turnip tops), accompanied by a glass of Ribeiro wine or a refreshing Estrella Galicia beer.

Join a Free Walking Tour to uncover A Coruña’s hidden treasures with local experts. From the scenic Paseo Marítimo, a stunning waterfront promenade, to the lush Jardines de Méndez Núñez, each step reveals the unique charm and beauty of this historic coastal city.
