The fishermen's wharf dates from the fifties and predates Puerto de Abrigo, this is where the fishing boats were unloaded.
In 1988 it was destroyed by Hurricane Gilberto to be rebuilt in 2009.
It bears the name of "Muelle de Chocolate" due to the "Solidarity Route of Chocolate", the first transatlantic sailing race, which linked the ports of Nántes and Saint Nazaire with Progreso. It is made of wood in its first stage and the rest of concrete.
On October 19, 2011 he was hit by the 40m "Noh Cheem" barge.
The "Muelle de Cocholate" withstood this blow without suffering any damage.
From here you will have a panoramic view of the beach of Progreso and the famous pier of arches, you can also take a selfie or photo in the "Connected Monument" which are 3 characters sitting on a bench watching their mobile devices and a free space for who want to take a picture.
On the other side before entering the concrete section of the fisherman's wharf is the monument with a gigantic fish, or if you prefer on the wooden wharf with the Ferris wheel at the back.
And a walk in the afternoon will make you have an incredible view of the sun setting, while you enjoy a traditional marquesita with queso de bola.
This section that crosses until it reaches the fishermen's wharf is known as "El Deck" a space that houses some food establishments, there are tables and chairs and a "cot" with the colorful letters of PROGRESO.
