A Coruña and Betanzos Trip
At 9:30 am, we will depart from the Plaza de Galicia square in Santiago de Compostela. After a journey of approximately 60 minutes, we will arrive in the city of A Coruña. We will start by visiting the famous Tower of Hercules, the oldest lighthouse of Roman origin in the world. Those who wish can go up to its viewpoint (entrance fee 3 EUR) and enjoy the spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.
After our visit to the Tower of Hercules, we will enjoy a walking tour of the historical center of A Coruña. We will discover the monuments and streets that surround the central Plaza de María Pita: the Church of San Jorge, the Church of Santiago, the Mirador, the Gardens of San Carlos, and the Riazor Beach.
After having about an hour and a half of free time for lunch, we will leave A Coruña and head in the direction of Betanzos. This picturesque medieval city was one of the seven provincial capitals of the old Kingdom of Galicia. You will find out exactly why the old town has been officially declared a Historic-Artistic Site.
Durante la visita guiada por Betanzos, visitaremos la iglesia de Santa María del Azogue, la iglesia de Santiago y el templo dedicado a San Francisco. Nos detendremos en cada monumento para apreciar su valor artístico y patrimonial. Además, degustaremos un delicioso pincho de tortilla premiado a nivel nacional.
