5 reasons to visit A Coruña
1. Places of interest.
If we have to recommend what to see in A Coruña, without a doubt we recommend you to visit the estuaries, go up to the “Curotiña” or “Pedra da Rá” viewpoint, visit the Castro de Baroña, the Corrubedo lighthouse or the Axeitos Dolmen. Other places that we want to recommend are the Corrubedo Dunes, the San Roque Periurban Park, or of course, the Couso area. In it you can enjoy wonderful views from the viewpoint that bears the same name, Porto da Covasa or Punta de Cabos Gordos. We are sure that all these recommendations will leave you open-mouthed and will make you discover our wonderful land more closely.
2. Something for everyone.
Thanks to its location and beauty, A Coruña offers you various plans for you to enjoy with children or if you are traveling with friends. During your stay in A Coruña, you can enjoy water activities such as canyoning, surfing or rafting, routes through the mountains, and activities related to gastronomy and wine. From Entre os Rios we offer you various canyoning activities, archaeological routes and visits our winery Entre Os Ríos, you can discover more closely the process of creating wine and tasting 3 of our own wines. Enjoy the landscape of our vineyards and know the whole process behind each bottle of wine.
In gastronomy from A Coruña you can find both sea and ground dishes. Of course, the most famous famous dish in Galicia… octopus “Pulpo a feira“. For fish lovers, during your visit to A Coruña you must savor an exquisite seafood platter, a traditional fish stew with hake, monkfish or turbot or an octopus casserole with clams and prawns. But that’s not all, if you prefer to savor its more carnivorous typical dishes, do not hesitate to ask for the typical dish such as the Galician churrasco, a plate full of cerno or veal with garnish, fried potatoes and Padrón peppers.
4. Support the local businesses.
The time we are living in, supporting our local businesses is vital. That is another reason to visit A Coruña, during your visit you will have the opportunity to support those small businesses in the area that live from the tourism. Visit those traditional bars, neighborhood stores, family businesses dedicated to tourism. Another tip that we want to share with you is the importance of sharing your experience with yours close ones. We live in the technological age where we all look for those comments, we visit places that we have seen through social networks or through recommendations from close friends. So, during your visit, write down each place you visit, that restaurant or activity that you do and share your experiences on social networks, platforms such as TripAdvisor, Google Business or with your family and friends. Finally, we recommend that you make reservations. By doing that you are helping them to manage the volume of work better and helps you reduce waiting time. The reservation system is used by bars or restaurants and various activities, guides or even parking lots. If that is your case, we recommend that you compare and reserve your parking space at the airports in Spain with Vuelapar. They will help you save time and money in the process of choosing your parking space.
5. Festivities and celebrations.
We begin with the year celebrating Holy Week, being the towns with the greatest devotion, Fisterra and Ferrol, where the streets are filled with tradition and religiosity. These festivals have been declared of National Tourist Interest. Another of the festivities held in A Coruña is the “Encaje de bolillos” show in Camariñas. A handmade product that brings together lacemakers from all over the world and where fashion shows of great and young designers are held. We jump to the month of June to celebrate the bonfires of San Juan in A Coruña. The beaches of Riazor and Orzán are filled with bonfires and the sky with fireworks to celebrate the beginning of summer. In the month of July, the sky is filled with fireworks again to celebrate the festivities of the Apostle Santiago. 2 weeks full of cultural events, parades, music, dance, theater and much more.
