It used to be the place where the known world had its ending. In this inhospitable condition relies the history of A Coruña, a millenary city whose roots can be found not in those of the Roman Empire or other civilizations of the time, but in legends and forgotten memories lost in time.
The geographic position of A Coruña as the extreme of the civilized world is what gives its strong ties to the ocean. This is symbolized in the Hercules Tower, part of the World Heritage declared by UNESCO and the only lighthouse remaining from the ancient Greco-roman time that is still in use.
Today A Coruña is an open and dynamic city that offers the traveler getaways with a wide range of singularities in the shape of attractive monuments, mythical stories, and routes around the city; pristine beaches, planetariums, museums and bars. Enjoy also the delicious gastronomy comprised of seafood, a typical trademark of Galicia.
