The construction of the promenade you are now on began in the 1980’s. Before that, this area, which now has restaurants and bars with outdoor seating and accesses to the Area Maior beach, looked totally different. Despite the changes however, locals and bathers enjoy it just the same now as they did before.
Most of the buildings you see are new, built where the fish salting, pickling, curing and canning factories were. Like La Sisarguesa, which used to be on the beachfront. A careful look will reveal old houses still standing.
Midway down the promenade, on a dune, was Carrillo’s slipway, where boats known as ‘rapetóns of Carrillo’ were built. In this former shipyard, wooden boats and barges were also repaired.
Now, the best way to enjoy this promenade is sitting on a terrace, having a drink while you gaze at the sea, with Sisargas background and beautiful sunsets on summer evenings.
