Nice square in the old part of the city of A Coruña, with the Calle Real next to him, and lots of restaurants and bars around. There are always activities and shows in the Obelisco,as some kind of markets in front.

Obelisk is situated at the site where everyone can notice if you travel by car along side to the Marina. it is visible from the road as we traverse on the way to the Torre de Hercules. Nice point of interest.

The whole square is a nice place for a walk during a sunny day. The Obelisco is nothing special, I didn't even notice it at first.

as stated not much to see or do, other than a pointed stick in the sky. Not overly creative, not sure why this mentioned and not the Octopus?

The obelisco is pretty, but nothing extraordinary. It is right outside a lot of good shops (Mango and Misako to name a couple), so it is lovely to see while shopping or walking torward the Avenida de la Marina.

Unusual collection of stones situated on coastal path between La Coruna and the Tower of Hercules. Worth a minor detour and offers a photo opportunity but that's it....
