Overview of the tour in La Coruna

The Torre de Hércules declared World Heritage Site, has the honor of being the oldest lighthouse still in operation today. Until 2021 it was the only lighthouse to hold the title since 2009.

This visit does not include entrance or access to the interior of the lighthouse as it has about 240 steps that not all attendees want or can climb.

Interesting are also the legends that exist about the Tower of Hercules, some involve the demigod Hercules and the foundation of Crunia, and others about the Celtic King Breogán who invaded the Isle of Eire.

Our visit is not only about the Tower's ancient history but also about the open-air museum located in its surroundings and the more than 15 sculptural works. Our meeting point is one of them, the Statue of Breogán, the work of Master José Cid, that guards the access to the area.

The environmental quality of the area, the natural space, the Atlantic Ocean, and of course the Tower of Hercules, the muse, and landscape of great artists such as Urbano Lugrís, Francisco Llorens, and of course, Pablo Ruiz-Picasso's "Tower of Caramel", who captured the area so many times during his youth when living in A Coruña.

This activity includes:

  • Parque Escultórico da la Torre de Hércules
  • Bahía
  • Torre de Hércules
