What to see in A Coruña
The Sculpture Park of A Coruña is made up of 47 hectares where the impressive Tower of Hercules is located. The park has information panels that welcome the visitor and show them the route and its history in a colourful and striking style. In addition, various routes run throughout the park.
The sculptures are based on three thematic axes: mythology, history and navigation. Hercules is the centre of many of the stories and legends, as are his legendary exploits and victories. The path follows the coastline, in a circle, skirting the Tower of Hercules, until it reaches the sculpture of Breogán, a Celtic warrior who founded the city of A Coruña. To the left, on this same path, is a totem-shaped structure called the Pentacephalic Menhir, made of bronze. Once the entire route has been covered, climbing the tower is the next plan. It has an interpretation centre and an incredible panoramic view of the city.
Another of the park's routes begins at the Breogán statue and is also circular. To do this route, you need to have a little more time, as it is 2 kilometres long. It is worth travelling the route, however, because it leads to one of the most emblematic artistic works of the place: La Caracola. This sculpture recreates, as if it were the horn of plenty, large shells of molluscs.
Inside the park are other impressive large sculptures that make the tour an incredible walk. The Menhirs, the monument to the executed or the poem by García Lorca are some of the incentives that make this park an unforgettable destination.
