  • The D. Fernando wall was built to substitute the old late-medieval wall that, by the 15th Century, had become too small for the growing city. It was rebuilt by D. Fernando, after whom it was named, between 1368 and 1437 with money from the wine transfer tax and it was about 3000 paces long and 30 feet high. It was topped off by battlements and strengthened by bastions and towers. Two stretches still exist today. The first, called the Trecho dos Guindais, can be found next to Rua Arnaldo Gama and the other, the Trecho do Caminho Novo, is next to the Escadas do Caminho Novo (Caminho Novo Steps). This visiting point is included in the Urban Wine Route.
