Portu Dock

Next to the Paseo de Ribera del Nervión is the Portu Dock, an old port area that served Altos Hornos de Vizcaya for decades. The docks were consolidated and regenerated in a way that blends the dock into the landscape of the new promenade. The regeneration works were carried out with the collaboration of the Port Authority of Bilbao and concluded in November 2007. In May 2020 the area underwent a reform, due to the development of one of the residential plots located around the Dock.
