Patra is the third biggest city of Greece as well as the biggest urban centre and port of Peloponnese. After the first years of Greece's independence, Patra quickly became an important centre of imports and exports playing a major role in the Greek economy. However, Piraeus, the port of Athens, undertook its role a little later, decreasing the traffic that the harbour of Patras once had. Patras' port is often called the Gate of Greece to the West. The terminal station of the port of Patra features waiting spaces, cafe-bar, commercial shops, Duty Free shops and agencies of all ferry companies that depart from the port of Patra. Finally, the port of Patra has 4 piers: Gounari pier, Agiou Nikolaou pier, Astiggos pier and the Northern pier.
