Valencia's Maritime Station is one of the most modern in Spain. Each year more than 500,000 people depart from the Passenger Terminal on their way to the Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, and Genova. In addition to human passengers, Puerto de Valencia is the top Spanish port and one of the most important European ones for cargo (containers) shipping. Next to the modernist Edificio del Reloj (clock building) and Edificio de los Tinglados (warehouse) lies the dock where the Golondrinas (pleasure boats) leave from; these provide daily tours around the beautiful inner harbour. Also nearby are the Reales Atarazanas (Royal Dockyards), a historic and artistic monument that houses the Maritime Museum.
