A Coruña Information
Situated beside the Atlantic Ocean, A Coruña is a historic city whose history has maintained close links with its old fishing and commercial port.
The peninsula on which the Old City stands also contains the Tower of Hercules, one of the symbols of the city, which is an interesting Romanesque collection of streets, squares and medieval churches.
The Aquarium Finisterrae, the Domus and the Science Museum are some of the places that show the more modern, recreational side of the provincial capital, which offers one of its most beautiful facets in the wide beaches of Riazor and Orzán.
All this is completed with cuisine recognised throughout the country, marked by the excellence of its seafood and meats coming from the inland parts of the province.
Around the provincial capital you can visit interesting places like Betanzos, declared a Historic-Artistic Site, Santiago de Compostela, capital of Galicia and World Heritage City, or Ferrol.
In the capital of Compostela you can stay
at the 'Hostal de los Reyes Católicos' Parador (15th C.),
declared a National Monument. For its part, the Parador at Ferrol
is one of the best places to stay in this seaside city. Some of
the most important ecosystems in Galicia are preserved in A Coruña,
like the Fragas do Eume Natural Park or the Complejo Dunar de
Corrubedo and Lagunas de Carregal y Vixán Natural Parks.
The Costa da Morte, a route along the steep Atlantic Coast passing
through places like Camariñas, Corcubión and Fisterra
has very interesting landscape.
