PORTALEGRE
King Afonso III ordered this city to be built in 1259. It is known as a port because, although it has no navigable river, it was an important customs centre for Peninsular trade. King Dinis ordered the city walls to be built. The city has lots of fountains, which are greatly appreciated in summer.
