Near the city, the RiasAltas, the Costa da Morte, and a little bit further away, Santiago de Compostela, make the city of A Coruña an ideal base for hiking in a beautiful natural area.
From the calm seafront to cosmopolitan streets full of life, lit up by the sun or by signs. From voices shouting at the fish market to walks through the Old City, around the
promenade or on the fine white sand of the city's beaches. Places to relax, natural areas to enjoy the view and the spectacular landscape. Art and museums, restaurants, taverns, pubs and bars to discos, the casino and classical music concerts.
Lying in the north west of the Iberian Peninsula, A Coruña, a window onto the Atlantic is a an ancient city, Atlantic and cosmopolitan, where the ocean has played a major role over the two thousand years of its history. The most emblematic symbol is the Tower of Hercules (World Heritage).
