The origins of the urban center of the city of the Port, date of the old age of bronze, approximately eight centuries a.C.. Since the beginning, the povoamento daily pay - historical it had important commercial linkings with the basin of the Mediterranean. During the occupation Roman, the city already was composed for impressive buildings and controlled an important road net between Lisbon and Braga. The city, later, was called, first of Is silent later and of Portucale, from where it derived the Portugal name.
The Douro or Duero (Latin: Durius, Spanish: Duero, pron. ['dwe̞ɾo̞], Portuguese: Douro, pron. ['doɾu] is one of the major rivers of the Iberian Peninsula, flowing from its source near Duruelo de la Sierra in the province of Soria across northern-central Spain and Portugal to its outlet at Porto. Its total length is 897 km, of which only sections on the Portuguese river are navigable by light rivercraft.
The name may have come from the Celtic tribes that inhabited the area before Roman times. (However, although in modern Welsh dwr is 'water' with cognate "dobhar" in Irish, the Celtic root is *dubro- ).
