Getting to A Coruña


There are countless ways to get to A Coruña. You can drive, catch a train, fly, come on a motorcycle, a bicycle, by caravan or even by ship...

A Coruña has its own airport. The Alvedro Airport is a 15-minute drive from the city centre. It offers flights to Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia, Malaga, the Canary Islands, Milan, Geneva, Paris and London.

In addition, a 45-minute drive or 30-minute train ride away, you have the Rosalía de Castro Airport in Santiago de Compostela, with flights to many Spanish and European cities.To make it easier for you to get around, Alvedro Airport has a bus and taxi service that go to the city centre.


If you travel by train, you can comfortably and conveniently arrive at the iconic San Cristóbal Station, half an hour's walk from the centre. If you prefer, you can take a bus or a taxi into town.

The train station gives you long-distance options, including the high-speed AVE train from Madrid, as well as medium-distance from Vigo, Pontevedra or Santiago de Compostela.


You can reach your destination with a short walk or by public transport.


If you choose to come in your own car, you can reach A Coruña via several main roads. The Autopista del Atlántico (AP9) connects us with Portugal, passing through Santiago de Compostela, Pontevedra and Vigo, among other cities. The Autovía del Noroeste (A6) links A Coruña with Madrid via Lugo, Ponferrada and other Castilian cities, and the Autovía del Cantábrico links us with Asturias, Cantabria and the Basque Country.
