Every time someone asks me about my favourite city in Spain, I give the same answer: La Coruna. Known as one of the most attractive cities in Galicia, it is the capital of the province of A.Coruna. With its famous Roman lighthouse on the Atlantic, it is also a lesser-known outpost of the region, with just over 1,000 inhabitants and an average annual income of around 1,500 euros.
Coruna is also home to a number of established international companies, and if you are in town for business, your hotel is ideally located in one of the many hotels in the area, such as the La Coruna Hotel. The province is well connected with Madrid by train and is served from both La Coruna International Airport and Santiago. If you want to walk the Camino InglA (c) s, there is an airport in the city for the region, but you can also fly in from Santiago or take off from the port of A.Corona. Lacoruna has a port, a motorway network provides access to the rest of Spain and there are many stops along the Way of Saint James and other main roads and motorways.
The bus from La Coruna to Fisterra is faster than the one to Santiago, although Santiago Compostela is more central and better suited for exploring the west (see below). The best thing about being in the centre of the city is taking a short walk along the Camino InglA (c) or the Way of Saint James at any time of day or night, but if you are in a hurry, you can be well behaved if you are in the centre in less than an hour and leave it. In Santiago de Compostera you can stay in one of the many hotels, such as the El Reye Hotel or even the Hotel de la Paz de Santiago.
The Galician capital, which has since been moved to Santiago de Compostela, but there are some structures that represent the Roman occupation of the Iberian Peninsula, during which A. Coruna was a strategic port city that granted the Romans access to the British Isles. Nearby is an 18th century noble house, where I lived for a few years in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
At that time, the combined British and American forces, who wanted to discover and use the city, could sail on cruise ships from Coruna, which they used as an operational base for their military operations in the Mediterranean. Exploring Coruna was fun and easy, with great views of Santiago de Compostela and the Galician coast and many interesting historical sites.
Galicia has a rich history: the country was once occupied by Phoenicians, Romans and Moors. Coruna is also home to the ancient city of Santiago de Compostela, one of the oldest cities in the world, and has also been the site of a number of important archaeological sites, including the Natural History Museum of Galicia.
The city is also known for hosting one of the most important cultural events in Galicia, the Coruna Festival. There are also a number of ancient cities linked to the birth of Galicia, such as Santiago de Compostela and Santiago del Sur.
The great parliamentary chronicler was born at the end of the first century AD in Santiago de Compostela, in the city of Santiago del Sur, Galicia, Spain.
With 245,000 inhabitants, Coruna is the largest city in a region of Spain known for its rich history and cultural heritage. Santiago de Compostela, as it is often called in English, is the oldest city in Spain and full of monuments and buildings of architectural interest. There are many styles here: Roman, Baroque, Renaissance, Neoclassical, etc. Its medieval quarters are vast and host a magnificent cathedral, making it one of the most famous and famous cathedrals in the world.
The city, which is located on a distorted isthmus, can appear like a single long promenade surrounded by a series of small islands in the Mediterranean Sea, some of the largest of its kind in Spain. It is characterized by an ancient river, along which the Celts divided, and which reaches as far north as Santiago de Compostela and to the south as far as Coruna. Under the Romans it was the port of Brigantium, but its current name is probably derived from the name it knew in the Middle Ages.
Coruna is now one of the most important ports in northern Spain, exporting agricultural products, especially onions and potatoes, and importing coal, salt and industrial products.
Local gastronomy is demonstrated by the uniqueness of Galician culture; in Galicia there is not as much rice and pasta as elsewhere, and seafood is the order of the day. Spanish port city, this is expected, but it does not look like ordering a Cerveza sin in Spain. The local Estrella Galica beer is particularly refreshing on cool days and comes in a variety of flavors, from sweet and savory to bitter and bitter, with hints of citrus. This whole meal is a fortified stew made for the people of northern Spain to fight the winter cold. It is easy to have for less than 5 euros and is served with rice, pasta and a generous portion of fresh fruit and vegetables.
