“A bit of history at your disposal”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Beautiful views and lots of Celtic history. Whene you are there you realize why it was selected as UNESCO World Heritage. If you love the sea, you'll feel awe as you stand before this Roman lighthouse

“A good visit”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The Tower and the views are fantastic I loved sitting outside the tower over looking the sea and Coruna, the Aquarium is about 900 yards away from the Tower.
A note of caution do not park in the towers carparking site there are a few men that direct you to a parking space {they do not work there} and then expect you to pay them,the best place to park is opposite the Aquarium and it does not cost you any thing.

“Oldest Roman lighthouse in use”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This beautiful Roman lighthouse, in La Coruña (NW Spain) is the oldest Roman lighthouse in the world still in use: it´s nearly 2000 years old and is now part of UNESCO´s World Heritage. It´s all made of stone and it´s surrounded by an open air museum. The views from the tower and the nearby area are simply breath-taking: cliffs and open sea, that can get really wild in stormy weather. This spot will surprise you more than you will ever imagine. And once you are here go and see the nearby town of La Coruña, you won´t regret it.

“Live History”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

A great ancient lighthouse dominates the city. It´s the oldest lighthouse in the world that is still operative. In the top you´ll find a awesome view of the city and the coast, so... if you can... visit it!
