Coruña, A

Traditionally, this town's history is linked to that of the apostle Santiago (St. James)

Situated just 22 kilometres from Santiago de Compostela, this town's origins are linked to Iría Flavia. This was the Roman city to which the apostle Santiago's remains were brought from Jerusalem. Its countryside, gastronomy and historic heritage are the main attractions for tourists, although the town is perhaps best known as the home of two important writers: poet Rosalía de Castro and Nobel literature prize winner, Camilo José Cela. In fact, in this town you will find the Rosalía de Castro House-Museum and the Camilo José Cela Foundation.
