Half-Day Private Guided City Tour of A Coruña

Half-Day Private Guided City Tour of A Coruña

La Coruña is called the “Glass City” due to its unique architectural style of constructing “galerías” (enclosed glass balconies) onto the side of its buildings.

This city is located in Galicia, a northwest area in Spain where the climate is rainy and windy which allows to have a spectacular green nature. This climate and the roughness of its tides make them to have a very high-quality fishing, and that’s why Galicia is also highly valued for its gastronomy, specifically for the seafood.

La Coruña is a very culturally rich city and with this tour, we intend you to know its history, gastronomy, and customs of its people. You will be surprised by the many fascinating places that this city offers. You will visit places like the famous Hercules tower, the only Roman tower still in operation, the pleasant and long promenade, you will go up to the Mount San Pedro, the best viewpoint of the city and as a must we will visit its old town.
