While many tourists make a bee-line for the southern coasts of Spain, the northern shores hold some authentic Galician gems for sunseekers. A Coruña has its fair share of lovely beaches, but its heritage and geography ensure it stands apart from other Spanish destinations. Built on a headland, its Old Town neighbours a busy port. A Tower of Hercules stands sentinel over the area, there’s an impressive plaza and an aquarium. But this is also a top choice for foodies, with plenty of modern Michelin recommended eateries, alongside tapas bars and street food. And A Coruña has on-trend hotels for your stay.
