This paper presents a factual record of the history of Gibraltar Harbour and how it has developed since the first mole structure was constructed in the early 14th Century. The paper will also show how breakwater and reclamation works have reshaped Gibraltar’s footprint and will draw upon hydraulic model results to show how developments within the harbour basin and in the Bay of Gibraltar have significantly affected the wave climate in the harbour and the resulting impact on the existing harbour structures and sea defences.
