If you want a view of the city, the Tower of Hercules included, this is the place to go. From there you can see everything in a tranquil atmosphere, in a park with the greenest lawn, which will invite you to sit and stay longer. If possible, go in the afternoon so you can see the sunset.

This site is worth a visit, the views are amazing, both over the town of La Coruna and out to sea. The grounds are amazingly well kept, and the history of the site is interesting too.

If you can tear yourself away from the other attractions this is the place to go.
