La Coruna (previously official name), A Coruna (currently official name), in English - Corunna, is a Spanish city and municipality of Galicia. It is the 2nd-largest city in the autonomous community and 17th overall in the country. The city of La Coruna is the provincial capital of a province of the same name. It has also served as the political capital of the Kingdom of Galicia between the 16th to 19th centuries, as well as a regional administrative centre between 1833-1982, before being replaced by Santiago de Compostela.

La Coruna is a busy port situated on the promontory in the entrance of estuary in a large gulf (Portus Magnus Artabrorum of classical geographers) on the Atlantic. It serves as a distribution point for agricultural goods from the area. La Coruna is nowadays the economic engine and the richest region of Galicia. In 2008 the population of the municipality was 246,060 inhabitants.

The city is the site of a lighthouse, the Roman Tower of Hercules, that has been in continuous operation since the 2nd century AD. It's been declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The Roman Tower of Hercules is surrounded by a vast public park with a former Muslim cemetery and a golf course. The lighthouse is the main emblem of La Coruna's flag and coat of arms. The city is also famous for its characteristic glazed window balconies, named galerías. The Old Town (Ciudad Vieja, Cidade Vella) is the name given to the oldest part of La Coruna. During the 9th and 10th centuries, the inhabitants of the then called Faro Island (the peninsula where the Tower stands) were leaving the region due to constant attacks by Viking fleet and settled in the Betanzos area.

Most clubs and bars in La Coruna are on Calle Orzan, running on the beach side, parallel to Paseo Maritimo. Another popular destination for the more youthful crowd, is The Gardens (Los Jardines), a park close to the beginning of Rua Real and Los Cantones Village Shopping Centre.

In 2017, the cruise port handled a total of 120 ship calls and over 170,000 passengers. The year also had 22 two-ships days.


Highlights: Santiago de Compostela, Castro de Borneiro, Dolmen de Dombate
