The Stone Crane

Port memories.

The great stone crane is preserved on the Muelle de la Monja, the pier where the promenade starts. It provided a major service to merchant ships during the last century: loading and unloading cargo weighing more than three tonnes. Essential for maintenance of the port activity. It was built in 1896 and is 14 metres high. You will find it just a few metres away from the Embarcadero Palace. It is the traditional starting point for a walk around the city.
