Too short, in some ways, my stint in Santiago de Compostela. It's a charming city and the apartment was fabulous, so I was sad to leave but, at the same time, I was keen to get home again because of a handful of reasons. Not to mention that I wanted to start to process all the photos I'd taken...
The flight didn't leave until 21.50, so we had the whole day, practically. First stop was A Coruña since we haven't been there yet.
Not knowing the city at all, I decided to navigate towards the Tower of Hercules first although I wished I'd read more about it before. Here are some links I've just found for you to follow should you wish to visit this landmark.

On the whole, I didn't find A Coruña very appealing. It felt lifeless, but, perhaps, I wasn't in the right places. Very often, in Spanish cities, when in doubt, the best place to head for is the old quarters. Well, either I didn't manage to find it or I was in it but it didn't look very inviting.
Have you been to A Coruña?
