Visit to the Tower of Hercules and the San Antón Castle
Las week Y2 students visited the Tower of Hercules and the Castle of San Anton. With this visit, our Year 2 students were able to consolidate the knowledge they have acquired in class in recent weeks about the city of A Coruña.
In this excursion they discovered curiosities about two of the most emblematic monuments of the city. The Tower of Hercules, which dates back to the first Century, is the only Roman lighthouse in Spain and the oldest in use in the world. Thay also learnt that the San Antón Castle is today the Archaeological and Historical Museum of A Coruña, but was also a fortress, prison or quarantine station to isolate sick sailors before entering the city.
