The Tower of Hercules in A Coruña, Spain, is the only Roman lighthouse still in use as an aid to navigation. Of course, it’s had some work done since the Roman’s it built it a coupe of thousand years ago.
There is a parking lot located several hundred meters from the tower itself. Then you walk along a long promenade out to the tower itself where you pay a small fee and enter the lowest portion. There you’ll find ruins from various times of occupation as well as quite a few steps to get to the top. However, the view is worth the climb.
It can be quite windy here so secure your hair.
And be sure to hang on to your camera.
If you’re lucky you might see some ships or sailboats out there. After that long climb up the stairs, head into town for a great meal. You earned it!
