This 12th century fortress is keeping watch over the port and the Old Town of A Coruña. Today it houses a Museo Arqueoloxico e Historico (The Historical and Archaeological museum) with some rather incongruous ancient Egyptian pieces through Roman and Visigoth artefacts to more recent times.
Restaurante Manolito is an old traditional restaurant with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The menu consists of typical homemade Galician dishes and most of the produce comes from the local area. Manolito has a good selection of puddings and the filloas (a Galician pancake), which is a must try dish.
A Coruna Airport is located 8 kilometres outside of the city and it mostly deals with domestic flights. The buses at Coruna Airport arrive and depart just outside the terminal building. The service connects La Coruna (Puerta Real) with the airport, with stops in Casino, Plaza de Orense, Avenida A. Molina, Alcampo, Portazgo, Corveira and Vilaboa leaving every 30-60 minutes. The journey takes 25 minutes to the city centre. You can also fly to Santiago de Compostela to reach La Coruna.
You can easily walk to most places in La Coruna, but if you are thinking about spending a bit of time in the city you can also choose to travel by bus or tram. There is also a tourist tram available if you want to discover the city. The main bus and train station are located opposite each other at Plaza de Madrid on the south side of the city centre. The local bus system is well organized and provides a reliable service.
