I really like being able to accompany visitors around the city and tell them interesting things, so that they can have a good memory and have a pleasant time, especially so that they enjoy a relaxing time, without rushing and the best possible way. and whenever they have offered me excursions or guided tours I have valued the simplicity, the fun, the "no rush" and the proximity of the guide. I offer that, walk, see and everything is easy.

About the Tour

Hello walkers! I offer you to visit my city, La Coruña, with this new TOUR and that has a pioneer and very important woman. Nurse and first woman on an international medical history and vaccination mission.

La Coruña offers many important stories and legends and this story of ISABEL ZENDAL , so called for a long time, deserves a special tour of the places of interest to learn more about its history or discover it who does not know who it was and what made it so important. for the humanity.

From the port of La Coruña that ship set sail with the Vaccine Philanthropic Expedition. It is the starting point of this heroic journey that will change the trajectory of the smallpox pandemic around the world.

We will make a complete tour of the city touching many points of interest and we will see, among other things, its tribute monument, we will also see that of Doctor Balmis , the name of the expedition in question and we will conclude our tour on the Balcón Balmis, near the sea and in port A that neither ISABEL ZENDAL nor the brave children who accompanied her will see again, true protagonists of this story of the world's first vaccination campaign.

This tour will give us the opportunity to immerse ourselves with the imagination in that moment. It is a journey to learn a little more about that figure whose name we have heard many times during our current pandemic and whose history many people do not know. After this walk, it is good to reflect on all the good that human beings can do for others.

We will start our tour at the Obelisk, in the center of A Coruña to enter Calle Real, passing through Plaza de Maria Pita, our heroine of the city. We will also visit the old city with its legends and stories of shipwrecks and battles against England and France and we will visit the statue of Isabel Zendal to finish at the Balcón Balmis to pay tribute to such an important work.
