Castle of San Antón - Archaeological and historical museum

Right in the centre of the old town, the San Antón castle seems to keep watch over the entrance to the port. This castle was a means of defense which the Coruna people relied heavily on, built in the 16C under Phillip II. Some illustrious characters, like the wiseman Malaspina were held captive in his blockhouses. Today it accommodates the archeological and history museum as well as a remarkable collection of silverware.
