Beaches in Ribadeo
Playa de las Catedrales
This beach is located in Dehesa, a little town that is part of Ribadeo and 12 km from the city. It is a spectacular beach when the tide is low. You can enjoy a wonderful walk between the arches that the sea has created through time. You can also find multiple caves that are quite deep. It is one of the clearest examples I have seen of the power of nature, when you are there you feel insignificant. Even if the tide is high, you can have a walk on the edge of the cliff or have a beer with fantastic views from the restaurant Las Catedrales. The prices are high, but it is worth it. The beach has two spacious parking lots, but it is complicated to find a spot on the summertime. If you decide to have a picnic, there is an area with tables and benches. If you like camping, it also has a few campings with different characteristics so that you can enjoy nature at its fullest. It is a place worth visiting. It is a lesson that teaches how nature always beats humans, creating gothic arches even before man discovered them.
Historical Monuments in A Coruña
Tower of Hercules
The Tower of Hercules is a Roman Lighthouse and UNESCO World Heritage Site in A Coruña, Spain. For history and architecture lovers, the structure itself is impressive, but for the rest of you, here's my recommendation: take the boardwalk path that circles the main beach and bay in A Coruña to the tower. It's gorgeous, with the fog, wildflowers, and little hidden beaches. When you get to the tower, skip the info center at the bottom and head straight for the top. The views are absolutely incredible and give you a birds-eye view of the massive compass and sculpture park. Perfect plan for a romantic morning: bundle up good against A Coruña's infamous weather, stroll along the bay and grab a coffee, then make your way to the tower.
Nature Reserves in Pontedeume
Fragas do Eume Natural park
These magical forests, declared natural park in the nineties, are the result of the equilibrium between the natural evolution and the mainteinance of the ground’s characteristics, the climate and orientation. They form the largest and most representative atlantic forest and they inspired “El bosque animado” by Wenceslao Fernández Florez. The Eume River, that has its source in the Serra do Xistral (Lugo) in the backbone of the park. The guides explained to us that, a long time ago, Galicia used to be covered by “fragas”. They are mixed forests, mainly with oak trees, but where you can also find maple trees, birch trees and holly trees. Its main threat is the eucalyptus tree plantations, which slowly displace the fragas. A very important factor of the fraga is that it joins various species that resisted the glaciations thanks to the ground’s orography. For example, the laurel is specie that is very resistant. It remained as a relict of the time of the Pangaea, where there existed only one continent that slowly separated. Another example is the fern, contemporary to the dinosaurs. This plant has no flowers, so it hasn’t received a lot of importance in decoration. But it reveals a special beauty in the humid brightness of the spaces where it is found. While walking through the park, you can see the remains of mills and old constructions used to the preservation of chestnuts because, before the potato was brought form America, it used to be the basic food of the people in Galicia.

It surrounds La Coruña's beaches, rocks, white galleries, classic buildings, cliffs and fields. It connects the harbour with the Hercules Tower, Castle of San Anton, the Domus (or man's house).

It has a wide pavement for pedestrians to wander, a bicycle path, the controversial tram and, of course, the road for cars.
