Tour description

Our guided tour will take us through the Old City of A Coruña, where we will learn about its history through curiosities and legends.

The journey will be exclusively outdoors. We will walk through the labyrinthine streets of the Herculean Old Town and we will see the following points:

  • Castillo de San Antón (meeting point)
  • Pier Gate
  • San Carlos Garden
  • Rowing House
  • Dominican Square
  • Barbara Square
  • Collegiate Church of Santa Maria
  • cornide house
  • Synagogue Street
  • House of Rosalia de Castro
  • Constitution Plaza
  • Azcarraga Square
  • Saint James Church
  • House of Emilia Pardo Bazán
  • Plaza de María Pita (end of the tour)

Each of these places keeps an anecdote, a secret or a legend.

It will be a good and interesting walk. So even if it rains or shines... the visit will be unforgettable!

Muy comunicativa y familiar. Es un recorrido muy bonito por la ciudad vieja q nos ha sorprendido. Con muchos detalles históricos y anécdotas. Quizá he echado de menos aspectos prácticos como sitios típicos con su tapa característica. Donde tomar un buen café frente al.mar Donde tomar alguna copa por la tarde o por la noche. Por lo demás perfecta. Gracias Vanessa
