Visited here as an afterthought. So glad we did as it is worth a visit. Much bigger inside than it looks and so much to see inside.

The Castle of San Antón (castillo de San Antón) is one of the most interesting monuments of the city of La Coruña, in the Spanish region of Galicia. Take the time to visit it.
