After being forgotten for 30 years in a warehouse of the Port Authority, a piece belonging to the old Tower of Hercules it has recently been incorporated into the heritage of the lighthouse.

Luisa cid, Councilor for Tourism of A Coruña City Council, has commented that its dimensions are 1.18 meters long by 0.47 meters high and that last year it was requested by the Xunta de Galicia to become part of the Gallaecia Petrea exhibition of the City of Culture, in Santiago, where it has remained until the last month of April.

2,000 years ago the lighthouse already had a lighting system to which belonged the stone that is now exposed at the base of the lighthouse whose function was to be placed on a container with oil and behave like a large lighter.

I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
