Introduction


On this walking tour you will visit A Coruña´s important monuments starting by climbing the stairs to the top of the tower of Hercules. The tower is in fact the oldest lighthouse in the world, originally built in the 1st century during the time of the Emperor Trajano. Over the centuries it has been repeatedly modernized and the lighthouse is in working order. It was built by the Lusitanian Cayo Sergio Lupo, restored in 1682 and again between 1788 and 1790 by the architect Giammini. It is the only Roman lighthouse in working order and its image appears on the city´s coat of arms. The tower has been declared of National Heritage.

Then after this we will visit another important landmark of the city is the Castillo de San Antón (San Anton Castle), this 16th century castle is a fortress restored and rebuilt over the centuries. It is located on a small island and is artificially connected to the mainland. The present castle dates back to 1779. Together with the Castillo de San Diego which is situated on the opposite side of the bay they protected the entrance to the harbour. The Archaeological Museum is housed here.
