A Coruña is an ancient city even by European standards. Its chief claim to fame in Antiquity was the Farum Brigantium, a lighthouse built by the Romans in the 2nd century and dedicated to the god Mars. Known today as the Tower of Hercules, it is the world's only fully operational Roman lighthouse, a UNESCO world heritage site. 

On our relaxed walking tour, you will explore parts of the town normally off-the-radar for most visitors. In the Old Town we will take in cute Romanesque churches and traditional taverns and eateries popular with locals. 

We will get to taste quality red and white Galician wines at three different locations and sample the traditional Galician pie known as empanada, the ubiquitous polbo á feira or octopus., baby scallops, Spanish Tortilla, etc...
