A commercial and fishing giant at the crossroads of international maritime routes

The Port of Vigo has been a crucial actor in the history of the city, marking its economic and cultural development over the centuries. Its strategic location on the Atlantic coast made it in a nerve center for maritime trade and fishing, activities that have been the driving force of the local economy since ancient times.

Throughout its history, the port has been a witness and protagonist of significant events, from naval conflicts to the flourishing of the canning and fishing industry, elements that have woven the identity of Vigo.

Currently, the Port of Vigo remains a fundamental pillar of the economy and life in the city. It is a center of frenetic activity, where international trade and the fishing industry converge. The port stands out for its specialization in the movement of diverse high-value merchandise, and is a leader in ro-ro traffic operations on the peninsular Atlantic coast.

This port dynamic not only boosts the local economy, but also connects Vigo with the rest of the world, strengthening its position as an important seaport at a global level. The Port of Vigo, therefore, is not only a witness to history, but a vital actor in the present and future of the city, maintaining its maritime legacy and opening paths towards new opportunities for growth and development.

The port of Vigo covers more than 20 km and includes several specialized docks. Among them are the Bouzas Terminal, dedicated to ro-ro traffic and ship repairs; the Beiramar and O Berbés docks, for fishing boats; theTransatlantic Pier; a sports dock; and the O Areal, Comercial and Transversal Docks, which are intended for general cargo and fluids and have a railway connection.

In terms of its commercial activity, the Port of Vigo is connected to the whole world, with direct lines to America, Europe and Africa. It is the sixth most connected port in Spain and the second on the Atlantic coast, standing out in international trade. The growth in maritime lines has been notable, including routes such as the maritime motorway with Liverpool and new routes with Bruges and Algeria. The traffic that grows the most in Vigo is cars and fruit, both of an international nature.
