It’s exactly this geographic feature which defines its appearance. The port and the Obelisk open the way to the continuous glass galleries of the Paseo de A Marina which are one of the mirrors in which the city centre is reflected at any time of the day.
In parallel to the two most important commercial arteries, Calle Real, the pedestrian area and neuralgic centre and San Andrés, visitors and people from Coruña take the sea as a horizon to walk along the seafront promenade.

Here, about 4 kilometres from the city centre the users of campervans count on a service area. Not far away an old military zone was transformed into the majestic viewpoint Monte de San Pedro a privileged vantage point which you access by a glass elevator.
