Did you know that Ferrol is the city of shipyards? It currently has about 70,000 inhabitants and is one of the most important cities in La Coruña. However, this municipality suffered a great decline during the Spanish Civil War and the subsequent dictatorship, since, in these years, Franco nationalized the famous shipyards.

In the 80's and 90's, the maritime sector suffered a strong decline but thanks to the subsequent construction of the new Outer Harbor and the Atlantic Highway, it seems that Ferrol is coming back to life.
