Find Businesses and Services in La Coruna, Galicia

The name A Coruna is said to be derived from the ancient columna, or Tower of Hercules, which still exists, having been converted into a light-house in 1791.

A Coruna is a busy port located on a promontory in the entrance of an estuary in a large gulf (the Portus Magnus Artabrorum of the classical geographers) on the Atlantic Ocean. It provides a distribution point for agricultural goods from the region. Although much of the heavy industry is based on the shipyards and metalworks of the neighbouring city of Ferrol, there is an oil refinery in A Coruna itself.

A Coruna is located on a peninsula and its isthmus was at times formed only by a small strip of sand. Erosion and sea currents caused a progressive accumulation of sand, making it wider to the extension it has nowadays.
