Termaria Casa del Agua is one of Europe’s largest water leisure centres and it’s situated right here, in the centre of A Coruña. This fabulous space is a veritable urban oasis, housing the city’s largest thalassotherapy centre, an Olympic sized swimming pool, treatment rooms, a fitness centre and indoor as well as outdoor relaxation spaces.
Every city has its local team, and A Coruña is no different. Here it is Deportivo La Coruña that carries the banner, and it has done so very well over the years, representing the city and region at the top level of Spanish football – and allowing it to punch above its weight and mix in with traditional giants like Real Madrid and Barcelona.
It’s not all about the Camino de Santiago, rugged Atlantic coastline and tapas of the eight-armed variety in this corner of Spain. For high in the mountains of Galicia, (just east of Ourense) is the Manzaneda Ski Resort, which is becoming increasingly popular with international snow sport fans. The village is hidden amongst the dense forest in the snow-capped slopes of the Sierra de Queixa, where you’ll find an alpine style retreat offering breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside from its well-kept slopes.
For those who haven’t heard about this famous pilgrimage route, it is a blister-inducing 750 kilometre long walk from the traditional starting point of Roncesvalles in the northeast of Spain to Santiago de Compostela in the northwest. Although there are countless starting points all over Europe, you can begin this ancient pilgrimage anywhere you chose, though the majority tend to start in the French town of Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port. Known as The Way of Saint James in English, this UNESCO recognised collection of centuries old paths has seen its popularity soar in recent years since the Hollywood film The Way, starring Martin Sheen, came out in 2010.
Next Sunday 17 November the city of Valencia will be host to one of the most important and popular races in Spain: the 33rd ‘Maratón Divina Pastora’, organized by Valencia’s town council and the ‘Sociedad Deportiva Correcaminos’, a sports club which has organized the marathon since 1981 when it was known as ‘Maratón Popular de Valencia’, in collaboration with the Trinidad Alfonso foundation.
Three million euros per vehicle. This the price for the ‘Sergio’ concept car (limited to just six units); Ferrari’s homage to the legendary Italian car designer Sergio Pininfarina (Turin, 1926). Inspired by 1960s racing cars, the ‘Sergio’ concept is based on Ferrari’s 450 Spider model, benefitting from part of the mechanics such as the V8 engine with 570 horsepower and a sequential gearbox with seven gears which can reach a top speed of 320km/hour (from 0 to 100km/hour in 3.4 seconds).
Only a few days left now until Valencia’s much anticipated 15k run, a sport event which will captivate athletic enthusiasts, most of all those who are busy preparing to tackle this half-marathon. During the upcoming weekend, 15th-17th February, the city of Valencia will dress to impress for this exceptional event, which will be celebrated for the first time in the capital of Turia.
