The first port of Salvador, the country’s commercial sea gate, a popular tourist destination for travelers from all over the world—such epithets are great for the town of La Libertad. A camera on the shore of the Pacific Ocean is set in front of the port pier. The first official merchant ship arrived in La Libertad in 1857, but the port itself appeared in the middle of the 18th century.
An interesting fact is that the town where this webcam is installed got its name after the port, and it happened exactly 100 years after the arrival of the first ship, in 1957. Today, the population of La Libertad is about 35,000 people. Most residents are employed in the agricultural sector, as well as in the services sector and in fisheries.
The town is often called Puerto de la Libertad or simply El Puerto, thus paying tribute to the town-forming port. In 2010, the construction of the boardwalk was completed at the port, where many tourists are now walking. In addition to restaurants and hotels, on the boardwalk, you can find an amphitheater where local artists give performances.
