A Coruña [La Coruña, Corunna]

La Coruña is the 2nd largest city in Galicia, NW Spain [after Vigo]. A busy port built on a promontory, bustling town, famous for its seafood restaurants, lovely beaches with plenty of Museums and sights to keep one busy, including Torre de Hércules, built by the Romans as a navigation beacon in the 2nd century A.D. - the oldest lighthouse in the world, which is still in use. During the summer months a tram runs around the coast and the main sites, but with no tram and having visited before we just wandered about the central area.
