Vigo is a city in the south-west of Spain, on the shores of the Rías Baixas - the largest estuary of the Bay of Biscay. Vigo is a major economic agent in the region because of the French Stellantis Vigo Plant and its port. Vigo is located near the Portugal-Spain border and is part of the Galicia-North Portugal Euroregion. The Port of Vigo is more than 20 kilometers long and has more than 9 kilometers of docks. It is said to be one of the finest natural ports in the world and its maritime qualities have given rise to present-day marinas and the transatlantic harbour.
Featuring a 702m berthing line, the port can easily handle the largest ships in the world. It can simultaneously host 3 to 4 small ships or 2 large ships. With its terminal the cruise port can easily handle homeporting or interporting operations.
Global Ports Holding has started operating Vigo Cruise Port through a 50/50 joint venture with local partners under a concession agreement that currently runs until the end of 2024.
