City of A Coruna, Spain

A Coruna is the second largest city in Galicia in the north west of Spain, second only in size to the port of Vigo in Pontevedra Province. The city's traditional name in English is Corunna and is the capital of A Coruña Province. A Coruna is a busy port located on a promontory in the entrance of an estuary in a large gulf on the Atlantic Ocean. It provides a distribution point for agricultural goods from the region. Although much of the heavy industry is based on the shipyards and metal works of the neighbouring city of Ferrol, there is an oil refinery in A Coruna itself.

Tourism in A Coruna has increased in recent years to the point of receiving 62 cruise ships a year. One of the drivers of this tourism is the promenade that skirts the entire city, the longest in Europe, measuring 10 kilometres in length. There is also a tram and a bike path that runs through most of the journey. Also, there is a cultural tour, passing several museums such as The House of Man and La Casa de los Peces (Aquarium Finisterrae) and it also visits the Castle of San Antón, which contains the archaeological museum, or the Tower of Hercules. This Roman tower is a lighthouse that has been in continuous operation for nearly 2,000 years. It has been declared by the UNESCO as Human Heritage.
