This UNESCO-protected site, which dates back to the second century AD, is the only ancient Roman lighthouse still in use. As such it’s one of the most popular things to see in La Coruna and a real point of pride for residents here.
The Torre de Hércules was built on a headland that looms over the Atlantic from a height of 57 metres. It was restored in the 18th century to protect the original Roman monument while augmenting its technical functions.
Visiting the tower is free, but there is a small fee if you want to climb the stairs and see the panoramic views from a vantage point at the top. and there is abundant parking just below it.
