Discover The Port of Málaga with a New Volkswagen T-Roc 2019
As much as 3,000 years ago, the Phoenicians used the bay as a trading port and founded a settlement. Due to the extensive expansion of the harbour district up to 2011, it eventually became possible to connect the cruise terminals with the historical centre via the Plaza de la Marina and the Paseo del Parque. Nowadays, it is possible to admit four cruise liners at the same time and accomodate around a million cruise visitors every year. Not only deep-sea vessels can be moored in the port but also yachts and sports boats. Discover the port of Málaga, Fetajo rental car Malaga Airport
