      Energy Observer, the first round-the-world hydrogen-powered vessel, continues its journey to Saint-Malo. During her recent stopover in La Coruña, Spain, our laboratory vessel made an essential technical stop, accompanied by a crew changeover.

      La Coruña, a coastal city in the Galicia region of northwest Spain, offers a blend of history, culture and picturesque seascapes.

      Its strategic location has made it a vital seaport for centuries, and its rich past is reflected in its impressive architecture, including the Tower of Hercules, the oldest working lighthouse in the world, dating back to Roman times. The cobbled streets of the old town are full of charm, with colorful medieval buildings, ancient churches and lively squares.
