long history'

or a Ferreoli Domini, "the lord of Ferreol" veiled allusion to the town, which could have had a temple under the patronage of St. Ferreol. History thumb left The centre of Ferrol (File:Ferrol-024.jpg) thumb 160px left Art Nouveau (File:Casa Pereira II.jpg) building in Ferrol, designed by Rodolfo Ucha The existence of prehistoric human settlements in this Galicia (Galicia (Spain))n city is backed up by the abundance of burial chambers (Chamber tomb), megalithic monuments (Megaliths) as well as Petroglyphs and other archaeological findings. The Phoenicians established in this area different dried and salted cod stations (Dried and salted cod) and their presence together with the presence of the Ancient Greeks (Ancient Greece) is well documented by historians like Herodotus amongst others. In Roman (Roman Empire) times, in the 1st century BC, a fishing port existed in the bay of Ferrol. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire (Migration Period) the whole Iberian Peninsula (Western Roman Empire), including Ferrol, was raided by the Vandals and incorporated in 411 to the Suebic Kingdom of Galicia; their kingdom was incorporated in 584 by Leovigild (Liuvigild) to the Visigothic Kingdom.

Ferrol Naval 1750 Ferrol Historia - Interesting document showing the royals of Spain from 1492 till 1805: Spanish Empire In 1568 "History of Ferrol" El Ferrolano Newspaper, 10 February 1846, no.1, Front Cover: Ferrol a fire reduced to rubble the old medieval town; in the same period some parts of the existing fortifications at the entrance of the estuary were built. World Heritage List: El Ferrol (''Submission Papers'') UNESCO, 27 April 2007 As a naval base, at that time the town was considered more important as a Royal Arsenal than as a safe harbour. With the arrival of the Bourbons (House of Bourbon) in the 18th century, Ferrol became a leading naval centre. The City and Naval Station of El Ferrol during the Reign of Charles III of Spain by the Dutch pilot Hugh Debbieg (1731-1810) Ferrol was made Capital of the Maritime Department of the North (Naval Structure of the Spanish Navy in the New Millennium), formed under Ferdinand VI and Charles III (Charles III of Spain) for the defence of the Spanish Colonial Empire in America (Spanish colonization of the Americas). Rapid improvements followed, notably under the leadership of the Marquis of Ensenada (Zenón de Somodevilla y Bengoechea, Marquis of Ensenada), and the position of Ferrol was made almost unassailable from the sea, the difficulties of disembarking troops on its precipitous coast being strengthened by a renewed line of fortresses and newly built castles, including that of San Carlos. The Royal Dockyards of A Graña and Ferrol, built between 1726–1783, "Ferrol" Encyclopædia Britannica, 2009 produced ships protected with copper sheets from the rolling mills of Xubia. In 1772, The Spanish Royal Academy of Naval Engineers of Ferrol, the first such academy in Spain, was created. Ferrol was virtually impossible to blockade in the age of sail, as strong westerly winds would take any blockading force away along the treacherous north coast of Spain where they had no safe haven. The geography of Ferrol meant that an entire Spanish fleet could slip out on a single tide. By the time the British were able to resume the blockade, the Spanish would be safely away and out to sea. Despite these advantages, a decline set during the reign of Charles IV (Charles IV of Spain), and in 1800, during the Ferrol Expedition (1800), after the defences had been reduced, a British fleet of 109 vessels landed troops on the beach of Doniños to take the Castle of San Felipe. Although only equipped with meagre artillery, the castle's small defence force under the command of Count Donadio (Andrade) together with a sizable number of volunteer citizens of Ferrol, successfully resisted the attack and the fleet withdrew. The alliance with the United Kingdom during the Peninsular War of 1808-14 failed to prevent the deterioration in the town’s fortunes. The arsenals and fortresses were abandoned and they were easily occupied by the French in 1809 (Battle of corunna). thumb left Aerial view of the city (2009) (File:Ferrol City.jpg) Under Ferdinand VII, Ferrol lost its title of capital. New activities sprang up, however, in the mid-19th century, during the administration of the Marquis de Molina, "The Armies of Europe

He nevertheless continued to close and tested the Frenchmen's resolve with a broadside. After an ineffectual but vocal reply had revealed to him that the French ships were fully manned and armed, Maitland brought his ship about and began to escape.
