In the south, the harsh and hostile sea borders the space between the two city cathedrals – the New (Nueva Barroca) and the Old (Vieia Columnaria) – at the critical point of the permanent struggle between the land and the sea. That space, which saw the exclusion of cultures that have been incessantly changing from the Punic age to the present day, offers exceptional stratigraphy at its base, perfectly preserved in the form of an archaeological site. The location where, as Berger said, two lines intersect: ‘The vertical line is the path going to the sky above and the realm of the dead below; the horizontal line represents global traffic, all the paths leading from one end of the Earth to the other.’ In fact, at the crossing of the two lines, in the safety promised by their intersection, Alberto Campo Baeza had the task to design a building that would manage to fill that sacral emptiness, that point of departure and arrival for all earthly voyages.
