A Coruña (Castilian: La Coruña) is a port city and beachy hot spot; a cultural hub and a busy commercial centre; a historic city and a proud modern metropolis with a fine food scene and buzzing nightlife all in all, an intriguing place to discover that is too often overlooked by travellers.

The city occupies a particularly contorted corner of the Galician coast. The centre sits on an isthmus straddled by the port on its southeast side and the main ocean beaches on the northwest. An irregularly shaped peninsula extends 2km north out to the citys World Heritagelisted Roman lighthouse, the Torre de Hrcules. The Paseo Martimo, a wonderful 13km walkway and bike path, runs all the way from the port, around the peninsula, along the ocean beaches and on out to the west.

These are our favorite local haunts, touristy spots, and hidden gems throughoutA Coruña.

It was actually the Romans who originally built this lighthouse at the windy northern tip of the city, in the 1st century CE a beacon on the furthest edge of the civilised world. The outer facing of the 59m-high tower was added in 178890, but the inside is mostly original Roman. Climb the 200-plus steps for great panoramas over the headland and its outdoor sculpture park. Buses 3 and 5 run here from Porta Real near Plaza de Mara Pita.

Not just for techies, the National Science and Technology Museum will engage everybody. Youll see the first computer used in Spain (a monstrous IBM 650 from 1959), and the entire front section of a Boeing 747. Perhaps most fascinating is the room displaying innovations from every year of the 20th century a 1965 SEAT 600 (the tiny car that got Spain motoring), a Sony PlayStation (1994), a 1946 state-of-the-art pencil sharpener and much more.

Pablo Picasso lived in this large apartment from the age of nine to 13 (189195), while his father taught art at a nearby school. The apartment is kitted out with period furniture and copies of the many paintings and drawings that Picasso did while here, testament to his precocious talent. Ring the bell to enter.

The 16th-century Castillo de San Antn, the fort set on its own little promontory guarding the entrance to the port, now houses the Museo Arqueolgico e Histrico, with a drily presented but extensive collection ranging widely over A Coruñas prehistory and history.

Kids love the seal colony and the underwater Nautilus room (surrounded by sharks and 50 other fish species) at this excellent aquarium on the citys northern headland. The focus is on the marine life of Galicias coasts and the Atlantic.

Highlights at the sleek Fine Arts Museum include paintings by Rubens, Picasso, Tintoretto and Sorolla, an impressive collection of Goya prints and a fine exhibit of 19th-century Galician Sargadelos ceramics.

Stately Plaza de Mara Pita is rimmed with cafes and dominated by the early-20th-century Ayuntamiento and a monument to the the square is named after shes depicted here repelling the 1589 English invaders in a flowing dress.

This hilltop park 2km northwest of the city centre provides exceptional views over the city and coast, and contains the Cpula Atlntica, an observation dome with displays on A Coruña, as well as a maze, cafe, restaurant and two very large 1920s guns. Part of the fun is getting up there in the Ascensor Panormico, a large glass ball that slowly ascends the steep hillside from the Paseo Martimo.

The old home of A Coruñas great , who took an inspirational lead in repelling a 1589 English invasion force (retaliation for the Spanish Armada of the previous year), is now an interesting museum covering her life and the history of A Coruña in the 16th and 17th centuries.
