Palma Port

Palma Port

It is the largest of the five managed by the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands and is located in the middle of the city, just in front of the labyrinthine old town. Joined from one point to the other by the promenade, which was literally stolen from the sea in the sixties, it is divided into four distinct areas: the commercial docks, Poniente docks, the sports docks and the West dike. It has some services that, while having faced space limitations, have made possible the consolidation of the port as one of the most important in the Mediterranean in relation to cruise ship traffic.

The combination of freight, sports navigation (the bay of Palma is the setting for some of the most important regattas in the Mediterranean: the Copa del Rey and the SAR Princess Sofia Trophy), arrival and departure of passengers, and fishing, requires to optimize the use of the facilities and, above all, the space. With the perfect combination of tradition and technological advances, this port is the physical demonstration that the Mediterranean has its own philosophy, slow and quiet; but, that it has a character that does not forget modernity and that makes it a place that, both visitors and inhabitants, appreciate a lot.

History

In the city of Palma there was maritime traffic even before the Muslim domination (902-1229) in two parts of the current port, the harbor of Portopí and in the Cala, now terrified, that stretched from the Paseo del Borne to where it rises the Palace of Justice and the Grand Hotel. Of the current Old Dock there are already references in orders of the king Jaume I of the year 1273.

These primitive port installations remain practically the same until the beginning of the 19th century. Since then, the works that uninterruptedly configure the modern port of Palma have followed one another.

Pending its approval, is currently the draft of the Infrastructure Master Plan that provides for an important expansion outside the Western Dike, gaining ground to the sea, and that will provide new and modern facilities to the port of Palma. A great remodeling to face the future with guarantees to continue being one of the main ports of reference in the Mediterranean.
