About A Coruna

Coruna, formerly known as Corunna, lies on the north western edge of the Iberian peninsula and is historically the capital of Galicia. Our pick of the best places to stay in A Coruna offer a perfect base for discovering this part of Northern Spain.

A Coruna is an important Atlantic port these days, though it's possibly most famous for its role in the Napoleonic wars. In 1809 the battle of Corruna was a significant setback for the French. The British commander on that day - Sir John Moore - is buried in the city and his tomb is a popular visitor attraction.

More ancient, and just outside the city, is the remarkable ‘Tower of Hercules’. This Roman lighthouse dating back almost 2000 years, is still in operation today!

The city also boasts one of the longest promenades in Europe, and there are good beaches - notably the Orzan and Riazor. The latter hosts a free rock/pop festival every October. So if you're planning to visit then, book well ahead as the best places to stay in A Coruna will be very busy.
