This is why the Tower and skull-and-crossbones image is part of the coat of arms of the City of La Coruña. The present appearance of the Tower 68 metres tall and 112 metres above sea level is due to renovations carried out in the 18th century. xxx According to Irish and Spanish mythological history the Tower of Breogán was located on this site. Breogán was the brother of Mil king of the Ibero-Celts and father of Ith the leader of the first Ibero-Celtic expedition to Ireland. It was from Breogán's Tower that Ith first saw Ireland 900 kilometres north of La Coruña.
