Ferrol

recommendation by ferrol-ortegal

Description: Ferrol was built in close relation to the sea, taking advantage of the wealth provided by the fishing industry, the shipbuilding industry and of course the protection from seaborne invasions. The earliest Ferrol can be seen in the old city , which is currently a fishing and recreational port. From the 11th Century onwards the pilgrimage routes to Santiago brought many of the pilgrims from the British Isles and the north of Europe. This is how the English route of St James began.
