    Beaches, Balconies and a Beacon

    Spread around a wide bay and rocky promontory, A Coruña has an important Galicia port where many cruise ships stop. Overlooking the bay is Torre de Hercules, a lighthouse used continually since Roman times.

    A lengthy coastal promenade passes nearby Aquarium Finisterrae, where some pools are linked to the ocean. Further along are the curving sands of Playa de Orzán and Playa Riazor, whose offshore conditions are ideal for windsurfing, while to the east is smaller San Amaro beach.

    At the heart of A Coruña (also called La Coruña and Corunna) is elegant Maria Pita Square, named after a local woman who heroically fought the English Armada. Monuments of other famous figures include houses of Emilia Pardo Bazan and Picasso, and the Luis Seoane Museum, found among the old town streets with their typical enclosed balconies.

    The city also has an archaeology museum, set in 16th-century San Antón Castle on a rocky outcrop overlooking the water. Much more modern is the Millennium Obelisk, whose location offers views back towards the beachfront bars where the best nightlife is found. Quieter pavement restaurants surround parks such as landscaped Mendez Nunez Gardens with its fountain and bandstand.

    Accommodation options on Booking.com include luxury hotels, cheap apartments and guest houses near Plaxco Convention Centre, all easily reached from A Coruña Airport.
