Tower of Hercules

A legacy of ancient Rome

The Roman Empire left a number of ruins scattered around Iberia, but this is the only structure that is still in working use in Spain. Known to have been in existence in the 2nd century during the reign of the emperor Trajan this UNESCO World Heritage Site is 55 metres (180 feet) high, has a square foundation and an exterior structure in the form of a prism. Around the tower there's an attractive beautiful 47-hectare (116-acre) park that's an outdoor museum with mythological or sea-inspired sculptures including Peninsula de la Torre, Punta Herminia, O Acoroado, and Cabal de Pradeira.
