Excursion to Coruña, Muxía and Fisterra
The visit begins in the so-called “Crystal City“, A Coruña. We will visit the main tourist places in the historic and modernist area of the city. The Coruña Marina, an old fishing port flanked by its glassed-in galleries, emblem of the city, will serve as a point of reference for visiting the medieval city and the Pescadería neighborhood, the origin of the city.
We will also visit its most important and best-known monument, the Torre de Hercules, a lighthouse of Roman origin from the 1st century AD, located to the north of the city, the oldest working lighthouse in the world, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2009. We recommend wearing comfortable shoes to climb the many steps that lead us to the top of the tower.
We will make a panoramic visit along the seafront of the city, a work that specified its appearance forever and record the entire coastline in front of the rough Atlantic Ocean.
After having approximately an hour and a half of free time for lunch, we will head towards the Costa da Morte, a Muxía, where we will visit the Virxe da Barca Sanctuary, as well as some of the legends of the Camino de Santiago.
We will continue our way to the Cabo Fisterra lighthouse, where we will remember different shipwrecks that occurred on these coasts, considered by the Romans to be the end of the known world.
