Surrounding area

The Tower of Hercules is a monument surrounded by an environment of remarkable landscape, historical, ethnographic and archaeological value… something which has recently been acknowledged by the UNESCO. The visitor coming to this spot will have the opportunity to get to know it and discover it by traversing the paths that run in the proximity of cliffs.

There are currently four routes that cover Campo da Rata, Punta Herminia, the peninsula of the Tower and the beach of A Lagoa. All of them are low difficulty routes which can be made by families while relishing the views and the environment.

At the Visitors Reception Centre information will be given regarding the Bluetooth points where relevant information may be downloaded. Besides, information boards will be along the paths detailing information on aspects of cultural and natural interest.
