The city’s claim to fame is the Farum Brigantium, a lighthouse built by the Romans in the 2nd century and dedicated to the god of war, Mars. Known today as the Tower of Hercules, it’s the world’s only fully operational Roman lighthouse and the city’s most emblematic building.
La Coruña is an ancient city even by European standards.
