The city of A Coruna lies on the Atlantic coast in the north west corner of Spain. The city is situated on a small peninsula at the mouth of the A Coruna estuary. Over the years the city has expanded to fit an ever-increasing population and there are now three distinct parts of the city: La Ciudad Vieja, the Old City, which is also the highest part of the peninsula, originally surrounded by city walls. Here you will find narrow streets of flagstones, hidden plazas, churches, "casonas", houses typical of the area, and gardens; El Istmo, the Isthmus, this area was built in the 19th century and is the commercial part of the city, here you will find the fish market of the same name; El Ensanche, the Extension, this is the newest part and it occupies the mainland part of the city. A Coruna has its own beaches, the Riazor and the Orzan.
Torre de Hercules
This tower stands at the most northerly part of the city. The tower is in fact the oldest lighthouse in the world, originally built in the 1st century during the time of the Emperor Trajano. Over the centuries it has been repeatedly modernised and the lighthouse is in working order. It was built by the Lusitanian Cayo Sergio Lupo, restored in 1682 and again between 1788 and 1790 by the architect Giammini. It is the only Roman lighthouse in working order and its image appears on the city's coat of arms. The tower has been declared of National Heritage.
