The Romans thought that this was the westernmost point on earth and therefore the world ended here. It was the “finis terrae.” Why would anyone want to go to the end of the world?

Perhaps because Cape Fisterra hides the true secret of the Costa da Morte: wild landscapes and impressive beaches, some (sheltered by the cape) with calm waters and others with strong waves such as Mar de Fora, one of the wildest beaches in Galicia. And the great attraction of all time, the sunset over the immensity of the ocean, the sea at the end of the world.

In the medieval old town is the arcaded Plaza de María Pita, surrounded by narrow pedestrianised lanes. In this square is the Estatua de María Pita, a statue of a 16th-century woman who warned the town of an invasion by Sir Francis Drake.

Either during the day or at night, there is always life here. This is a city for strolling and enjoying oneself, with beaches beaches in the city centre and, with the Tower of Hércules overlooking it, a long promenade which goes almost all the way around.

The inhabitants of A Coruña are famous for living well, so follow their example. Sit at a café on the main square known as Plaza de María Pita and discover its fascinating history. Or stroll along the area of the Cantones and admire the famous glass windows, from the Modernist period.

One of the most unforgettable experiences for visitors to A Coruña and Galicia is the sunset from the Tower of Hercules lighthouse.

The Tower itself was built in the early second century AD by the architect from Coimbra, Caius Sevius Lupus. It now shows the façade that was added in 1791 during the reform carried out by the engineers E. Giannini (author of the plans) and J. Elejalde.

Santiago de Compostela

Santiago de Compostela is the capital of northwest Spain’s Galicia region. It’s known as the culmination of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route, and the alleged burial site of the Biblical apostle St. James. His remains reputedly lie within the Catedral de Santiago de Compostela, consecrated in 1211, whose elaborately carved stone facades open onto grand plazas within the medieval walls of the old town.

Santiago de Compostela is a stone apparition in the midst of the green forests of Northwest Spain and the nearby Galician “rias”. It was originally a stopping point on a Roman road, but the discovery of the Apostle James’ tomb at the beginning of the 9th century gave rise to a place of workshop in the corner of the Iberian Peninsula, which was then dominated by the Moors. From then on all of Europe started walking towards Santiago, a holy city of Christendom where the grace of plenary absolution awaited them. A Romanesque cathedral then arose there, with the following centuries adding the sobriety of the Renaissance style and the majesty of a Baroque style that eventually characterised the city’s monumental image, made from the granite of its monasteries, its pilgrim hospitals, its numerous churches, its stately houses and its squares, where time stands still. 

Tradition is still alive and the continent’s spirituality still looks towards Compostela, as shown by the last Holy Years, which will undoubtedly be the case in the Jubilee year of 2021+2022. The city’s visitors will find its treasures exhibited in sixteen museums as well as the surprising richness of its contemporary architecture, designed by Eisenman, Hedjuk or Siza, surrounded by Galicia’s largest area of parks and gardens.

This setting is alive with cultural expressions – annual music, cinema and theatre festivals, permanent and travelling exhibitions and traditional festivals– organised by the public and private sector, led by the five-hundred-year-old University of Santiago, whose lecture rooms add 23,000 students to Compostela’s stable population of one hundred thousand residents.

These are also joined, throughout the year, by several million visitors. Those who arrive exhausted, motivated by devotion; those who are attracted by the monumental wonders; those who come to participate in language courses or those who choose Compostela as the venue of their professional events: they all end up immersed in the permanent celebration that is the city’s life, especially during the Apostle Festival, declared of International Tourist Interest. Santiago takes care of its visitors by means of a network of hotels with more than 15,000 beds –apart from 5,000 seats available in specialised infrastructures designed for meetings and congresses- and a gastronomic range capable of satisfying those with a discerning palate and all kinds of budgets. No wonder that for more than a thousand years we have been a land of universal reception, a meeting place born for the daily exercising of hospitality.


The coastal town of Noia is a wonderful location with a  lot to offer , From Santiago, it is about a 15-minute drive (or less) away.

Noia has been a working port town for over a thousand years and is famous for its seafood, but on top of that it also has plenty to offer to visitors interested in history, architecture, and Galician culture. Many visitors familiar with southern Spain find towns like Noia a welcome change from the more tourist-oriented beach towns you’ll find further south, as it feels more authentic and accessible.

The city is very walkable, and we highly recommend exploring on foot to make the most of your visit. A great place to start is in the medieval district, where you can find buildings as much as 1000 years old. While many storefronts are relatively modern remodels, look to the upper floors of many buildings and you can see much older architecture, much of it distinctly Galician in style. Look for the carved granite the region is known for.

For those interested in historical buildings, there is a wonderful Gothic church called Igrexa de San Martiño that dates back to 1432. It is surrounded by plazas and was historically the town center. You may notice that unlike many similar churches, it has only one tower.

Legend says that this is to avoid competing with the Catedral de Santiago. In front of the church you can also see a Cruceiro, one of the stone cross monuments that are common across France, Portugal, and Spain. It is also worth your time to see the Iglesia de Santa There are plenty of small cafes and tapas bars throughout the city, so be sure to stop in to sample some local food and get a coffee as you explore. It’s not far from Igrexa de San Martiño, and also brings you close to the waterfront boardwalk.

If you’re exploring the hills around Noia, consider starting off by crossing the picturesque rope bridge over the river Tambre, one of the two rivers that feed the ría. That route will connect you to various hiking trails. As you  hike, you may get the chance to see evidence of history even older than the middle ages. Around 500 BCE Celtic tribes came to northern Spain, bringing with them the important culinary innovations of beer and lard. Before the Romans came to the Iberian Peninsula, these Celts lived in fortified hill settlements called Castros, whose ruins can still be found on local mountains. You’ll notice the Celtic influence in aspects of Galician culture.
