The project

Traditional marinas were born on the initiative of Culturmar with the aim of setting up living museums in several Galician harbours destined to be a worthy shelter and exhibition, as well as offering an open use of the traditional watercraft. They are envisaged as a homogeneous, interlinked network of marinas based in different harbours: each marina retains the identity of its heritage, the whole showing the rich wealth of the traditional Galician fleet.

They have materialized through the involvement and collaboration of the Galician Administration, mainly the Ministry of the Sea (Consellería do Mar) and Galician Harbours (Portos de Galicia), and under the auspices of the Mardevelas Project, developed by several Local Action Groups in the fisheries sector.
