Location and accommodation

Welcome to A Coruña

ASC 2014 takes place in A Coruña in the region of Galicia in Spain.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​With a coastline of almost 5000 km, the sea has a strong relationship with Spain – shaping the country's national identity as well as history and economy. Fisheries and aquaculture are especially  important in Galicia and you will see evidence of this in every corner of A Coruña, the crystal  city. 

It is often thought that the city's name originates from the presence of "Torre de Hércules", a Roman lighthouse, which, with 2000 years of history, is the oldest working  lighthouse in the world and an UNESCO World Heritage Site. But in fact the name arises from the "galerias" in the fishermen´s houses that constitute the largest continuous glass window series in the world. 

Discover these and many other wonders as you enjoy the local cuisine and culture.

We wish you a pleasant stay!
