  • In the Middle Ages, Porto protected the town with double walls of exterior and inner walls. It was completed in 1376 under the reign of King Fernando, and it seems to have this name because it started construction in 1336. In the past, there seems to have been a wall on the riverbank, but it seems that only the cable car remains now. As with other European cities, it was demolished in the 18th and 19th centuries. Because it might be inconvenient from the person who lives, it is natural if it says naturally.

  • Construction of the wall lasted 40 years and ended in 1376. Its length was 2500 steps, which is equal to 2.5 km. In height it is a structure about ten meters, the width - about 2 meters. The main material of construction was granite and stones. Today, only small fragments of this grandiose structure have survived - most of it has collapsed.
