    Beautiful and interesting. For a few Euros you can take a walk to the top of the tower for a spectacular view. If you get time and weather permits, there is a stunning little beach at the base of the tower. A must in your visit to A Coruña!

    This is a lovely walk which, on a clear say, gives fantastic views of Coruña. The walk uphill only takes approx 20 minutes. 45 minutes if you walk from Pontevedra. We packed a lovely picnic to enjoy up there which I'd recommend, but there appears to be a nice restaurant there too. Would love to try this walk out at sunset!

    Such a beautiful and clean plaza. Full of energy and delicious restaurants and boutique shops. Swing by and spend a shot or long amount of time. Perfect area if you are near the crusie ship terminal.

    Cape Finisterre is not the end of the earth nor the westernmost point of continental Europe, but there are other reasons why you should visit. Finisterre is one of the final destinations for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago, the Way of Saint James. I had just completed the Portuguese Camino and wanted to see the route that extends to the sea. Legend says that pilgrims ritually burnt their clothes on the rocks here before beginning their journey home. I didn’t see any proof of that, but you will see an ‘iron boot’ and a 0.0 km marker that makes for great photo ops. Besides being a place of pilgrimage, including numerous pre-Christian sacred locations, Cape Finisterre has a lighthouse and an interesting maritime history. But the number one reason to come here: the dramatic scenery! Tall cliffs drop to meet waves crashing below, and if you are up to it, there’s plenty of rock climbing to be had (careful, it is steep, watch the kids). On a clear day, you can’t beat the panoramic views of the rugged coastline and endless horizon. I visited with Tour Galicia. I would have skipped the lunch break in Fisterra to stay here longer.

    We walked along this very long sea promenade where you can see various buildings with different architectures such as palaces, castles and the famous tower of Hercules.

    Aquarium located near the Hercules lighthouse.

    Interesting with different habitats dedicated to local fish and from other parts of the world.

    The nautilus underground room is beautiful.

    Outside there is a huge natural tank with seals.

    Neat visit, I looked at everything. Couldn't read much as there is no English. I understand there is an audio guide, but for whatever reason it was unavailable (Covid? Staff didn't speak English, so I don't know). I suspect even with the audio guide, since only a small fraction of exhibits were numbered, that most content would not be translated. Aside from the structure itself, the highlight for me was the exhibit dealing with the Tower of Hercules and artifacts from that area. Really wonderful, well-curated collection, just a shame there wasn't English to make it more easily accessible.

    More than the beach itself, what I truly recommend is walk (or run) all along the promenade, starting from here (in front of the mythic stadium) all the way to the marina., crossing the Tower of Hercules and its surroundings. A challenge, but worth trying

    Cannot fault the MEGA staff and experience. They accommodated us at very short notice and provided an English speaking guide just for us. Oscar was very friendly and knowledgeable and took very good care of us for the whole tour. Would recommend this tour we really enjoyed it.

    Built in the 12th and 13th centuries, it is probably the oldest church in La Coruna. This beautiful Romanesque church is located in the heart of Old Coruna. The church has undergone various renovations. Its interior is very simple, consisting of a single aisle. Inside it houses two carvings of the Virgin, pregnant and nursing. On the tympanum of the main façade, from the 15th century, there is a figure of Santiago Apostol on horseback. In the upper part there is a rose window. The visit is free.

    As in the title it’s interesting without being too exciting. Much of the science on show is physics based and there is various examples that are interesting and engaging. The planetarium was fully booked on the day we went therefore we were unable to view that and we’ll maybe return at some point to see that as well.

    Another free to enter museum with themed narratives running through the exhibitions. very much aimed at children with more to do than simply walk and look

    A bit tricky to get to if you don't have a car and staying in central A Coruna. But theres a good mix of shops i.e home, DIY, clothes, sports etc...
    Quite a lot of choice in the food court and open late most days.

    I visited this as part of my tour surrounding the Hercules Tower. But it can also be reached coming from the other side of the maritime walk, and it’s also worthwhile. So many breathtaking views to enjoy in the area!
