The famous ship Armada departed from this city in 1588. Of course, a seafaring city should have a lighthouse. The Torre de Hércules is the oldest functioning lighthouse in Europe, built by the Romans and rebuilt in the 18th century. Also visit the City Hall of La Coruña in the Plaza de María Pita and the seaside promenade that gave the city its nickname: the glass city. This promenade, La Marina, is flanked by rows of balconies with glass windows, which had to provide protection from the strong wind. Some impressive churches in A Coruña are the Iglesia de Santiago and the Iglesia de Santa María.
