El Ferrol Mini Guide

Part of the La Coruna province in the north of Spain, El Ferrol is a great place to pick up low cost cars. El Ferrol played an important part in shaping the political future of Spain as this was where General Franco was born (he said that it should be known as El Ferrol del Caudillo from then on) as well as Pablo Iglesias who founded the socialist party there. If you wish to you can visit evidence of some of the earliest settlements on the Iberian Peninsula.

In nearby Ribeira, which is 125 kilometres drive by car, you can see a megalithic tomb. The Greeks, Romans and Phoenicians all settled there over the years with the latter setting up many areas in which they could salt fish. It was also raided by the Arabs and the Goths before the House of Asturias was established there.

El Ferrol City

El Ferrol is within the region of Galicia. It has a relative moderate climate for Spain as it is so far north. In the height of summer the temperature only reaches about 22 degrees Celsius.

It has an agricultural economy with fishing and horse breeding being two of the main industries, but ship building and creating canned goods is also important. El Ferrol also has the most important naval base in north Spain as it occupies a position of strategic importance.
