La Coruña is a sprawling, modern metropolis with two golden-sand city beaches. With an abundant supply of fresh fish available in the waters off the coast, this town is considered to be one of the region’s top dining destinations. Visit the Old Town to view a few pretty Romanesque churches.
The city’s most famous site, the UNESCO-listed Torre de Hércules, is found at the northern end of the city. Evidence suggests that this lighthouse was constructed by the Romans in the 1st century. Most of the lighthouse was rebuilt in the 18th century, but look for inscribed foundation stones that remain from the Roman original. Climb up 242 steps to the top of the lighthouse to see fantastic views over the city and coast.
Notice the distinct glass-fronted buildings found along Paseo Marítimo, which have earned La Coruña the nickname the “Glass City.” The glass balconies help to provide protection against the town’s frequently wet and windy weather.
Walk around pretty Plaza de María Pita, which separates La Coruña’s Old Town from the newer city. This central square is named for local housewife María Pita, who is said to have fired a cannon to alert the town when Sir Francis Drake’s troops attacked in the 16th century.
Look inside the Museo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología, a modern museum dedicated to science and technology. Don’t miss the unique room that displays a technological innovation from each year of the 20th century.
Walk along the golden sands of one of the town’s lovely beaches. Playa del Orzán is particularly popular with surfers, while the calm waters of Playa de Riazor are best for swimming.
Reach La Coruña by plane, bus or train from Madrid and Barcelona. Visit in August, when the weather is warmest and a number of lively festivals take place.
