A Coruña is in the extreme northwest of Spain and is part of the autonomous region of Galicia. It is an Atlantic city with a moderate climate. The main sector in the city is services. It is the economic and cultural centre of the area and plays the role of a regional metropolis not only in the province but in all Galicia. There have been various changes in the city's structure over the last few decades. Companies have grown, especially in certain subsectors such as finance, communication, layout and sales, manufacturing, technical services and the port itself (it is the largest in Europe in terms of fresh fish unloaded), with the increase in other port activities like crude oil and solid bulk, making up 75% of Galician port traffic. The city has been relaunched over the past few years with better access, an improved cultural, sporting, leisure and scientific infrastructure, a better framework, the recovery of the shoreline and the strengthening of the tourist sector. All this has reaffirmed the city's existing character as a centre for administration, sales, port activities, culture and tourism.
