In 1807 final approval was given to the project for Puerto de la Paz, by Silvestre Pérez, a key figure in our architecture during the 18th century. One year later the War of Independence broke out, and so the possibility of building a new port for Biskaia became definitely inactive. This port, this bold and innovative architecture that never went beyond the drawing table stage, reflects all the existing rivalry for commercial domination between the Town of Bilbao and the Seigniory of Biscay. History is reflected in a drawing.
