Maria Pita is a hero to the people of Coruña and rightly she has a monument in her honour, a plaza named after her and a public holiday and festival. The statue stirs up images of her awesome fearless deed fighting the invading British.

This is a beautiful square with old traditional buildings. You can just sit there to rest or you can try the restaurants in the square. I tried Pulpera and Norey, very good restaurants for trying the Coruna cuisine.
