  • A Coruna (Spain) - Galician Wines and Tapas with a Sommelier

    Description

    Enjoy a panoramic sightseeing drive through the city of A Coruña by heading first to the promenade that runs the length of the city’s coastline. See the 'galleries' along the waterfront that lend A Coruña its 'Crystal City' nickname due to their hundreds of windows. Long ago, the sea was nearer to the city and these windows reflected the sunlight bouncing off the surface of the water. Along the promenade (the longest in Europe) you will pass the Castle of San Anton, built on an island. Once a local fortress, currently the castle is an archaeological museum and is connected to the city by a causeway.

    Don't miss the Tower of Hercules, a beacon built by the ancient Romans, for a memorable photo stop. This is the only lighthouse of its kind that is still working in its original capacity and also is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As the most important monument of the city, it’s part of the coat of arms of A Coruña, together with the bones of Gerion—a giant who was killed by Hercules and lies buried beneath the beacon.

    Travel along the coastline past several estuaries with great views of the Galician forest. These typical villages claim they have some of the best beaches in the region. The highlight of this tour is when you discover the different Galician Wines with a sommelier at a local restaurant. Learn how the wines pair with traditional Spanish tapas from the region.
