La Coruna is a busy and attractive city at the very tip of Galicia. This is a perfect place to enjoy a gentle stroll around the streets and avenues, where it is possible to discover Roman architecture as well as more modern innovative buildings. The atmosphere in the many magnificent town squares is excellent and full of the joy of life on a hot summer’s day. Outside the town centre the beaches, the marina, the fishing port and the commercial port still play a very important role for the people of La Coruna.
