It has been announced that a Pompidou Centre (described as an ‘ultracontemporary artistic hub’), a museum that today is only to reside in Paris, is opening a branch in Málaga’s Muelle Uno. A cube building above underground parking has been planned to be used for the installment.

Another ultra-modern addition to this port are the promenades of Muelle Dos (pier two). They are ideal for family strolls, they have kid’s playgrounds, water features, organized entertainment and other modern relaxing spaces.
