La Coruña, Spain
La Coruña, the second largest city in northwestern Spain's fascinating Galicia region, is a mystical, magical place with a rich Celtic, Roman and royal Spanish heritage: Galicia was one of the first kingdoms to exist in Europe, and La Coruña was the kingdom's capital. Almost surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay of Biscay, for more than 2,000 years a variety of peoples and cultures have left their mark throughout this city that features Roman structures and medieval fortresses. Today, La Coruña is a modern city that features one of the longest seaside promenades in Europe, providing visitors on cheap holidays to La Coruña with access to the city's beautiful Playa del Orzan and Playa Riazor beaches.

La Coruña's Roman Tower of Hercules, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the oldest lighthouse in the world and has been in continuous operation for almost 2,000 years. Another important La Coruña landmark is the Castle of San Antón, a 16th-century fortress on a small island that's artificially connected to the mainland. The Castle of San Antón and the Castillo de San Diego on the opposite side of the bay were both built to protect the vulnerable harbour entrance. Today the Castillo de San Diego is the home of La Coruña's Archaeological Museum.
The Old City features its share of monuments and squares, but you can also sample some of the delicious local tapas served in its bars. Plus, like almost every Spanish city, La Coruña has a lively nightlife. Travellers can also use their accommodation in La Coruña as a base to explore other locations in Galicia. The region features vast green inland landscapes, never-ending beaches, seaside towns and Santiago de Compostela, a beautiful town with ancient streets and an impressive cathedral that has been the destination for thousands of pilgrims every year since Mediaeval times.
After paying homage at Santiago de Compostela, you could take a side trip to the Costa de Morte, a rugged region of cliffs hanging over the Atlantic and the home of Cape Finisterre, the westernmost point of Europe that was at one time thought to be "the end of the known world."
