Spain: Tower of Hercules

Yesterday I got five postcards: one from Spain, one from Andorra, one from France, one from Germany and one from Hong Kong.

The card from Spain shows the Tower of Hercules in A Coruña in Galicia. The Tower of Hercules is a Roman lighthouse, that was built in the 2nd century. It is said that it was built at the place where Hercules defeated the giant tyrant Geryon. Since 2009 is the Tower of Hercules on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
