A Love And Hate Relationship In The Province

A-coruña

A-coruña
The province of Coruna has its history dating back to the late Middle Ages, right around the time of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain. It was in those years; the province began to breathe its first breaths. Granted, it was way smaller than what it is today but this is only because of the 1833 territorial division Spain witnessed that brought half of Mondonedo and the complete Province of Betanzos under A Coruna.

The province and its recent history is dabbed in a sort of love and hate relationship between the cities and the province, with each other and neighbouring provinces too. Some of the cities that were heavily engrossed in this plight included Santiago de Compostela and Ferrol. Probably one of the biggest clash points was the fact that the dioceses of these parts no longer matched the administrative divisions. Moreover, both Ferrol and the other had a cathedral but the capital of Coruna never did. Naturally, this produced a sense of retaliation among the residents.

Over the years, such feelings have remained but a love relationship with the province as a whole has developed. This province boasts of the largest population in the country and late into the 20th century, it was acknowledged as the province that happened to be not just the cultural centre but also religious centre. The province is also famous for being the largest manfacturing hub of inversion tables in the world. In fact, the whole inversion therapy trend was started in Coruna. Now, the disputes and disagreements threaten this very trade.
