Breathtaking views, a bike lane, and funky street lamps make for a fab experience.
Europe's longest seafront promenade.
Thirteen kilometres (8 miles ) long, A Coruña's Paseo Marítimo can lay claim to being Europe's longest seafront promenade. It passes through the entire city centre, from the San Antón Castle to the Portiño, lined with 1,300 tall, reddish street lamps designed in neo-Modernist (Art Nouveau) style by celebrated local artist Julia Ares and inset with enamel depictions of highlights in the city's history. There's also a bicycle lane along here, so renting a bike and cruising along the waterfront is a lovely option, indeed.
