Either during the day or at night, there is always life here. This is a city for strolling and enjoying oneself, with beaches beaches in the city centre and, with the Tower of Hércules overlooking it, a long promenade which goes almost all the way around.
The inhabitants of A Coruña are famous for living well, so follow their example. Sit at a café on the main square known as Plaza de María Pita and discover its fascinating history. Or stroll along the area of the Cantones and admire the famous glass windows, from the Modernist period. And if you would like to go shopping this is the perfect place, especially if you want to dress in style.
Also, A Coruña has excellent museums, such as the Fine Arts museum, the Science Museum, the Domus or the Archaeological museum, located in the San Antón castle. And towards sunset, there is nothing like the cosy and romantic San Carlos gardens or if you prefer entertainment, the Méndez Núñez garden, right in the centre of the city. This is where the Kiosko Alfonso is located, which today is an exhibit centre and was formerly a cinema with two rooms separated by the screen, so you paid a lower fee if you watched the movie from behind the screen..
Dating from the sixteenth century, with reforms from the eighteenth century. Built on a small island in the bay of A Coruña, today connected to the mainland, it was built to house sufferers of contagious illnesses, and then served as a fortress and prison. Today it contains the city's archaeological museum.
An old Collegiate church built by the seafarer's guild in Romanesque style in the twelfth century, completed in the fifteenth century. Particularly interesting features include its rose window and the tympanum over the main door, with a scene of the Adoration of the Magi.
Built in the second century AD during the reign of the Emperor Trajan. It is the oldest working Roman lighthouse in the world. Its exterior was renovated in the eighteenth century, and it is the symbol of the city.
One of the most unforgettable experiences for visitors to A Coruña and Galicia is the sunset from the Tower of Hercules lighthouse.
The sun gradually sinks into the Atlantic in a dreamlike landscape, in front of the world's only Roman lighthouse still in operation, set in a park with sculptures representing the legendary origins of the tower and the city: Átrabros by Arturo Andrade; Breogán by Xosé Cid; Caronte by Ramón Conde; Hercules and Geryon by Tim Behrens and José Espora; and the 'Menhir Forest' by Manolo Paz.
