San Juan Bastion

We take Emilio Antón street and go down towards the port along Espartero street to SAN JUAN BASTION.

Nowadays San Juan bastion is a park located above the docks at Curuxeiras from where there are some wonderful views of the mouth of the estuary and a panoramic view of the dock area and La Cortina battery. This San Juan bastion dates back to the 18th century and formed part of the city wall. Below the bastion at the Curuxeiras dock, large cruise ships, recreational boats and small fishing boats gather. It is interesting to note that here we find the starting point of the English Way to Santiago.
