Buildings with typical galleries Coruña

Contrary to what people inside may think, in Galicia it doesn't rain daily, a Galician does not always answer a question with a doubt and in that corner of the Peninsula they have beaches that could rival those of the Mediterranean Sea. If the water wasn't so cold, of course.

Plan a Getaway to Ferrol and Coruña It is a great opportunity to remove stereotypes from the head, bring good food to the stomach and let our feet step on the mountains, sand and medieval streets (such as those of the English Way, which has a double origin in Ferrol and Coruña).

Ferrol is born hugging her estuary and that is why the most interesting thing to visit is facing her or due to her influence. At one end of the city is the Port of Curuxeiras, live track of Ferrol who went fishing, for days or weeks, from sardines to whales. Today it is also a marina and departure point for the boat service that during Easter and summer takes you to the other side of the estuary, to the Council of Mugardos, where you have to try, yes or yes, its peculiar way of preparing the octopus in any Harbor restaurant.

Restaurants recommendation

There is much good to choose from to eat in Ferrol, here you have my experience in five Ferrol restaurants where I have eaten or eaten dinner. As an additional note, do not miss the readers recommendations They have left us in the comments.

Behind the docks of Curuxeiras, began what was once a medieval town with 400 homes but that, fates of fate, all but thirty were destroyed in a fire. Do not expect to find useful buildings but without soul, because a real turn of history in the eighteenth century marked, for good, the future of that small fishing village.
