The Port of Málaga was established about 3,000 years ago by the Phoenicians. The natural harbor grew in importance with each successive dynasty – Roman, Visigoth, Muslim, Christian, Imperial Spain and into the present. The port has a network of ten docks. They serve a host of maritime traffic, from cruise ships to commercial vessels to pleasure boats. This building was built in 1934 to house the Málaga Port Authority. They currently manage the flow of over 40,000 vessels annually. It is fun to imagine how the port will evolve during the next three millenniums.
