A CORUÑA, AN ATLANTIC
CITY TO DISCOVER
Our apartments are located in 5 Rúa Plaza, in the heart of the old town, and very close to the main tourist attractions in the city. The area is mostly pedestrian and characterized by hosting a great diversity of small stores and hostelry around the popular San Agustín market.
Our climate is oceanic, with mild temperatures and without great differences between the different seasons of the year.
A Coruña has an important historical heritage, the Tower of Hercules being without doubt the most prominent, the only and oldest functioning Roman lighthouse in the world.
The Castillo de San Antón, whose purpose was to defend the city from attacks from the sea, or the Collegiate Church of Santa María del Campo are also particularly unique.
The splendor of the city occurs towards the end of the 19th century, as its port traffic becomes important. The characteristic glass galleries of La Marina, which are today the best-known postcard of the city, were built in order to protect the facade of the seafront and allow light to enter the main part of the house.
At this time noble buildings are also erected for the thriving bourgeoisie, as is the case of the house that Noro Travel Home occupies.
Since then, A Coruña has grown absorbing influences from international styles, from art noveau to rationalism, which today dot the city.
Some wonderful architectural examples are the Kiosko Alfonso, the Casa Molina, the Banco Pastor building or the Casa Arambillet.
A Coruña has a wide range of museums and leisure centers, such as:
- The House of Man (Domus)
- The House of Sciences
- The Aquarium Finisterrae
- The Museum of Fine Arts
- The Archaeological Museum
- The Luis Seoane Foundation
- The María Pita House Museum
- The Abanca Foundation
- The National Museum of Science and Technology.
