It's quite the drive up to the top of the hill (or you could take the giant glass elevator straight up), but the views are well worth it.

It is a nice place to come and enjoy great views of the bay, the city, try the food in the restaurant there or just walk a bit. The weapons from the war are impressive.

The gun emplacements are very good but typically they only face out to sea. They'd be useless if attacked from the rear. Fantastic views of this area.

Good place to see the city laid out in view. There is a funicular railway to the top to save your legs. Fun and worth the effort.

Amazing view from the city. Preferably in a sunny day to view the infinity of the sea and the beautiful colours of the city. It's always windy but it is a must see!

This is the peak opposite the Tower of Hercules, which provides amazing views of The Atlantic coast at A Corunna. There are remnants of the coastal defences, especially two enormous guns, but these were never actually fired in conflict. The view across to the Tower...More
