Up until 1991 the ferry was the only connection between Spain and Portugal. The opening of the International bridge after 4 years construction in 1991 was fundamental in opening this area of Spain. However the ferry is very popular amongst local and tourists alike. It is an ideal way to visit Villa Real de Santo Antonio in Portugal.
