The Port of Seville is the only inland maritime port in Spain. It is located in one of the country’s most important cities, with more than one and a half million inhabitants living nearby, and in the main cargo hub in the south of the peninsula. It is a completely multi-modal port with sea and land connections and there is plenty of space in its 850 hectares to develop logistics and industrial activities.
It is a strategic location for the European Union and has six port terminals under concessions and three which are public, more than 4,000 metres of mooring space, one million square metres of storage and a cruise terminal in the centre of the city.
The Port of Seville is strategic for Europe. It is one of the principle nodes in the Core Network and foms part of the Mediterranean Corridor of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T), and also of the Atlantic Corridor with the navigable portion of the Guadalquivir, given the importance of inland navigation routes in Europe.
The history of Seville is intimately bound to that of the Guadalquivir. In this section we shall run through the development of the Port and explore the enormous potential of the Guadalquivir as a transverse factor in the social and economic growth of Seville.
