The Guadalquivir is an essential part of any study of the history, social and economic growth and urban planning of Seville. The city itself has been shaped by the course of the river and grown as the Port has expanded, making the Guadalquivir and the Port the reason for Seville’s existence and the cornerstone of its past, present and future. This relationship between the river, port and city, which reached its greatest heights in the trade with the Indies and the first circumnavigation of the globe, has continued to the present day and part of the testimony of its modern history is kept at the Historical Archives of the Port of Seville.

It is essential that Seville preserves its legacy that has determined its history, and this is why the material kept in the Ports Historical Archive is so important. It is a collection of over 5,000 documents that can help to interpret and assess the milestones in the recent history of the river, from the 18th century to the present day.

It also has more than 3,000 scanned photographs that show important events from the past, such as the building of the Tablada cutting, the wharfs of las Delicias or New Yoir, or the first lock.
