Santa Ana Port

 

History

Is a touristic building complex of 4 hectares formed by several office buildings, commercial shops, apartments, squares, museums and a pier that borders the Guayas river.

Its construction began in January 2005 and the first stage was inaugurated on April 15, 2007. It cost more than 20 million dollars that were funded by the Municipality and private corporations.

The work, whose original layouts were designed by the American firm of architects DDG, similar to Cocowalk in Miami, was built right in the place where the city was born. The old National Brewery, the dairy company Indulac and the rice company Modelo used to be settled in the same exact location. The area is connected to Las Peñas Neighborhood through the Numa Pompilio Llona Street.
