Located on a peninsula in Galacia in northwestern Spain, La Coruna is a busy port with a long history. The citys main landmark is the imposing Tower of Hercules, a Roman lighthouse built in the 2nd century. In addition, its atmospheric squares, medieval churches, Romanesque architecture, and bustling streets are a delight to explore. Picasso lived in the city for four years and art buffs will enjoy the Picasso Route, a walk through his favourite spots. The city is also noted for its outstanding sea food. At the wheel of your car hire from La Coruna with Sixt, you can easily visit many interesting spots in the region including the famous pilgrimage destination of Santiago de Compostela, the Fragas do Eume Natural Park, and the fascinating sandy landscapes of Costa da Morte on the Atlantic Coast.
