Tour description

Discover A Coruña in a different way. We'll talk about history and geography, of course! Although we will also see the city through the eyes of its inhabitants and their customs.

A Coruña is a beautiful city located in a privileged enclave where the saltpeter of the Atlantic Ocean impregnates the air with that fragrance so characteristic of fishing cities. The Celts and Romans must also have thought that when they settled in these lands.

The history of La Coruña is very prolific, as we will see in its precious monuments that we will discover throughout the visit while , in an entertaining and fun way, we will tell different anecdotes that help us better understand the peculiarities of the city.

We will of course talk about María Pita and her heroic role during the siege of the English in 1589. Due to historical circumstances, the English would become allies of the Coruñeses three centuries later.

We will walk through the winding streets of the old city , one of the great unknowns of A Coruña, even for the people of A Coruña. There we will visit its beautiful religious buildings (The Collegiate Church of Santa María, the Convent of Santa Bárbara, the Church of Santiago), and also its military constructions (Jardín de San Carlos, building of the General Captaincy, etc.).

We will marvel at the city's fantastic maritime galleries and then try to discover the function they perform and why they are so.

We will visit the most central streets of the city where we will see the busiest hotel and wine area.

We will walk in front of one of the most important markets in the city, the San Agustín market and its beautiful modernist building ,

Immediately afterwards we will go back to the heart of the city where we will see the church of San Nicolás to finish the visit on the magnificent beaches of the Atlantic façade of the city where we will talk about the beauty but also the bravery of the Atlantic Ocean.

Do not hesitate, book your place and discover the city in a different way with a local and fully accredited guide. We are sure that you will not regret it. :)

PS.: Not all the locations shown in the photos are visited on site, but directions will be given on how to get to them.
