Cruise by Tower of Hercules Lighthouse Cruises

Tower of Hercules, Spain
Tower of Hercules, Spain

One of the oldest active Roman lighthouses in the world, and arguably one of the most architecturally impressive too, the Tower of Hercules – located between the Orzán cove and the Gulf of Ártabro – is a sight to behold as you sail into, and depart from, the historic Spanish city of La Coruña.

While the light cast by the tower is visible from 32 miles out to sea, from on board your smaller ship you’ll enjoy a much closer view of this Roman gem, which originally dates from 2nd century CE and was restored to the glory it is today by order of King Charles IV of Spain in 1788.
