A densely populated historical and pretty city is constrained within a hammer head shaped outcrop and home to a busy port and three marinas. The city spreads inland westward into the hills.
"A Coruña (Galician: [ɐ koˈɾuɲɐ]; Spanish: La Coruña [la koˈɾuɲa]; historical English: Corunna) is a city and municipality of Galicia, Spain. It is the most populated city and the second most populated municipality in the autonomous community and seventeenth overall in the country. The city is the provincial capital of the province of the same name, having also served as political capital of the Kingdom of Galicia from the 16th to the 19th centuries, and as a regional administrative centre between 1833 and 1982, before being replaced by Santiago de Compostela.
A Coruña is a busy port located on a promontory in the Golfo Ártabro, a large gulf on the Atlantic Ocean. It is the main industrial and financial centre of northern Galicia, and holds the headquarters of the Universidade da Coruña." Wikipedia
Busy with many boats stopping over before heading off to The Canaries via Maderia. Nice place to be for a couple of days. Lots of expensive boats and lots of activity.
