Ferrol, Spain overview

Now one of the principal Spanish naval stations, El Ferrol's natural harbour, protected from the sea by rocky hills, is the third largest in Spain. After 1939 the city's name became El Ferrol del Caudillo because it was the birthplace of General Francisco Franco, who had become caudillo (leader) of Spain; in the 1980s, however, the longer name was abolished.

Although we docked at this port we did an excursion to La Coruna instead. To the Crystal Palace. As not many cruise ships stop here they make a big thing of us when we leave and get bagpipers to play the ship off and then when we get to the fort they fire the cannon.

Not a lot to see, but pleasant enough for a gentle stroll. Also had the best tapas ever at a pavement café. This was the first stop after 2 sea days, so a nice warm up for Seville

Not much at all to see in this port. Definitely worth looking at excursion options. In parts it looks a bit run down and there is not even much in the way shops and cafes.
