Known during the Roman Empire as Portus Cale (the origins of the name Portugal), since that time the city has been considered an important landmark for social, economic, military and governmental reasons. Birthplace of Infante Dom Henrique (main figure of the Portuguese Age of Discovery), it olds many landmarks thus reflecting the relationship between the other world communities, specially the British, being the Port Wine the most famous symbol of the city and the country.
