    En Argentina el Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Censos define a una localidad con un criterio físico, oponiéndola a las áreas rurales. En ese sentido, toda concentración espacial de edificios conectados entre sí por calles[1]​ [2]​ que sea fácilmente identificable en fotografías aéreas o satelitales o cartas topográficas, es considerada una localidad. La localidad mínima está conformada por un mosaico de 4 manzanas edificadas. Las discontinuidades menores en la edificación , tales como tierras intersticiales no edificadas, corrientes estrechas de agua y espacios verdes, no afectan la definición. La separación máxima entre mosaicos es de 1000 metros y con manzanas separadas, de 500 m [3]​ Esta definición fue aplicada implícitamente en todos los censos y fue explicitada en 1991.[4]​ Las localidades suelen crecer y unirse a otras. Cuando estas uniones se dan entre localidades de una misma unidad de gobierno local (como municipios, comunas, etc.) el aglomerado resultante es consider...

    En documentos emitidos por el gobierno federal o por los gobiernos locales de los estados de la república mexicana (por ejemplo, actas de nacimiento del Registro Civil), el término localidad puede ser sinónimo de ciudad, de colonia, de delegación o de municipio, pero en realidad el control lo lleva INEGIcon su lista de localidades.

    O nome Portugal apareceu entre os anos 930 a 950 da Era Cristã, sendo no final do século X que começou a ser usado com mais frequência. O Rei Fernando I de Leão e Castela, chamado o Magno, denominou oficialmente o território de Portugal, quando, em 1067, o deu ao seu filho D. Garcia, que se intitulou rei do mesmo nome.

    En este tratado se establecía entre otras cosas la delimitación fronteriza entre los entonces reinos de Portugal y de León, en la que se incluía la cuestionada localidad de Olivenza. La primera fue debida a la crisis sucesoria abierta tras la muerte de Fernando I de Portugal , que acabó con la victoria portuguesa en Aljubarrota en 1385.

    Origin

    There is no clear evidence as to what the name derives from. It seems to be from Crunia, of unknown origin and meaning. At the time of Ferdinand II of León (reigned 1157–1188) the name Crunia was documented for the first time. As usual in Galician-Portuguese (as well as in Castilian Spanish), the cluster ni naturally evolved into the sound [ɲ], written n, nn or nh in old Galician orthography, nn in Spanish (later abbreviated to ñ, like the original Latin cluster "nn"), and nh in Portuguese an...

    Use

    In English, use of the Spanish or Galician forms now predominates. However, the traditional English form Corunna /kəˈrʌnə/ can persist, particularly in reference to the Battle of Corunna (1809) in the Peninsular War. Archaically, English-speakers knew the city as "The Groyne", probably from French La Corogne.In Spain, the official form of the name is now the Galician one: "A Coruña", though many Spaniards continue to use "La Coruña".Certain groups of people[which?] have advocated elevating th...

    A Coruña is located on a peninsula, and its isthmus was at times formed only by a small strip of sand. Erosion and sea currents caused a progressive accumulation of sand, enlarging it to its present dimensions.

    Prehistory

    A Coruña spread from the peninsula where the Tower of Hercules stands, onto the mainland. The oldest part, known popularly in Galician as Cidade Vella (Old City), Cidade Alta (High City) or the Cidade (City), is built on an ancient Celtic castro. It was supposedly inhabited by the Brigantes and Artabrians, the Celtic tribes of the area.

    Roman times

    The Romans came to the region in the 2nd century BC; they made the most of the strategic position and soon the city became quite important in maritime trade. In 62 BC Julius Caesar came to the city (known at the time as Brigantium) in pursuit of the metal trade, establishing commerce with what are now France, England and Portugal. The town began to grow, mainly during the 1st and 2nd centuries (when the Farum Brigantium Tower of Hercules was built), but declined after the 4th century and part...

    Middle Ages

    After the fall of the Roman Empire, A Coruña still had a commercial port connected to foreign countries, but contacts with the Mediterranean were slowly replaced by a more Atlantic-oriented focus.The process of deurbanisation that followed the fall of the Roman Empire also affected A Coruña. Between the 7th and 8th centuries, the city was no more than a little village of labourers and sailors. The 11th-century Chronica iriense names Faro do Burgo (ancient name of A Coruña) as one of the dioce...

    The province and city of A Coruña during the 20th century

    After the War of Independence (1808–1814), the fortunes of Ferrol began to deteriorate. The largest port in northern Spain, site of the Reales Astilleros de Esteiro, one of the three Royal Royal Dockyards together with Cartagena and Cádiz, almost became a "dead" town during the reign of Ferdinand VII. By 1833 the City and Naval Station of Ferrol saw its civilian population reduced to 13,000. During the administration of the marquess of Molina, Minister for Naval affairs in the mid-19th centur...

    The city is the site of the Roman Tower of Hercules, a lighthouse which has been in continuous operation since possibly the 2nd century AD. It has been declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It is surrounded by a large public park with a golf course and the so-called Moor's Graveyard (Cemiterio do Moro in Galician, Cementerio del Moro in Spanish) a building where in fact there were never burials, Muslim or not, which now houses the Casa das Palabras(Galician for House of Words) museum. The lighthouse features as the main emblem of the city's flag and coat of arms. The city is also well known for its characteristic glazed window balconies, called galerías. Originally, this type of structure came about as a naval architecture solution for the challenging weather, particularly designed for rainy days. This fashion started in nearby Ferrol in the 18th century when some of the technicians working for the Royal Dockyardshad the idea of using the shape of the back of a warship in a m...

    A Coruña is nowadays the richest region of Galicia and its economic engine. There have been various changes in the city's structure over the last few decades—it now shares some administrative functions with the nearby city of Ferrol. Companies have grown, especially in sectors such as finance, communication, planning, sales, manufacturing and technical services, making A Coruña the wealthiest metropolitan area of Galicia. The port itself unloads large amounts of fresh fish, and with the increase in other port activities like crude oil and solid bulk, which make up 75% of Galician port traffic. In 1975, the clothing company Zara, founded by Amancio Ortega Gaona, opened its first store worldwide in this city and has since become a national and international clothing chain. Inditex, the main textile manufacturer of the world, has its headquarters in the nearby town of Arteixo. A Coruña concentrates the 30% of the GDP of Galicia and in the period between 1999 and 2001 it grew 35%, surpa...
