Description

'Situated on the picturesque northwest coast of Spain, Ferrol emerges as a historical treasure with deep maritime roots and a naval tradition that has left an indelible mark'. This walking tour is designed to immerse a group of up to 8 people in the history, architectural charm, modernist appeal and vibrant culture that characterise this Galician city. We will explore its old shipyards, silent witnesses of centuries of naval history, and stroll through its streets imbued with a unique maritime charm. We will explore in detail the two distinctive areas of Ferrol, revealing the most iconic and recognized points of each, where we will highlight: * The picturesque Ferrol's Old Town: In this picturesque enclave, Ferrol Vello invites us to discover its corners full of charm. The Curuxeiras quay, where the marina unfolds next to the imposing building of the Maritime Captaincy and a tourist office, offers an incomparable view. The Baluarte de San Xoán bastion adds a historical touch, while the gardens and La Ranita fountain create a relaxed atmosphere. The Reina Sofia Park, home to the fascinating Aquaciencia, becomes a green oasis, while the Park Gate opens onto the imposing military Arsenal. The moat and remnants of the city walls add a touch of history, and the parish churches of Socorro and San Francisco, annexed to the Parador de Turismo, complete this picturesque and historic landscape. * The Historic District of La Magdalena: In the evocative streets of La Magdalena unfolds a scenario where some of Ferrol's most emblematic monuments stand out. Among them are architectural gems such as the imposing Teatro Jofre, the majestic Co-cathedral of San Julián, the bustling Mercado de la Magdalena, the imposing Praza de Armas with its Town Hall or the headquarters of Afundación. In addition, the charming Praza de Amboage adds its charm to this rich collection of places of historical interest. Details and Flexibility: This walking tour stands out for its meticulous attention to detail and its ability to adjust to your tastes. The guide will be able to modify the route according to the interests of the group, guaranteeing a personalised and memorable experience. Flexibility and individualised attention are fundamental pillars of this unique tour through the charms of Ferrol. Customer experience: We want every moment to be special. From the first greeting to the farewell, we make sure that every detail is taken care of. Our guide will be there to answer questions, provide additional information and guarantee the satisfaction of every member of the group. ⚓‍♂️ #TourFerrol
