Introduction:

On this day excursion you with 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.

After visiting A Coruña city, we will have lunch in a restaurant located within a traditional Galician Pazo (Manor house) with beautiful gardens surrounding the Manor and an elegant dinning room with antique furniture, they offer the finest Galician cuisine in the area.

Now we follow around the Ria of Betanzos and admire the small fishing villages of the Rias Altas (High Estuaries). We will stop to visit Pontedueme and Betanzos, as well as the Military Castle of San Felipe just next to Ferrol.
