Public Domain

Via the Public Domain and Port Protection, the Port Authority manages the Port area for public or private usages, by granting authorisations or concessions that enable the occupation and operation of activities that are envisaged within the framework of the usages and activities established according to the regulations.

In addition, we manage authorisations for the provision of commercial services within the Port area.


Occupation of the public domain

The occupation of the Port’s public domain, in accordance with the provisions set forth in Section 2 of Chapter 3 of Title V of the revised text of the Law governing State and Merchant Navy Ports, can be processed by means of an authorisation or concession

​ Occupation by means of an AUTHORISATION may not exceed a period of 3 years, including extensions, with removable furnishings or installations.

Occupation by means of a CONCESSION may be for a period of more than 3 years up to a maximum of 50 years, with non-removable constructions or installations.




Port areas and infrastructures

The Port Authority is responsible for providing and managing port areas and basic infrastructure, promoting economic activity in the Port.

Management of the Port’s infrastructure and public domain will be carried out by applying the criteria of cost-effectiveness and efficiency.

You can find a list of occupied places in the Port of Tarragona by visiting the application published in this section.
