This can be seen from the Diana's garden right in front of the Roman Temple. Perfect place to enjoy the city's arab narrow street influence and also the sunset at Alto de Sao Bento by the end of the day.
Between the 8th and 13th centuries, the Arabs dominated an important part of the coast and the southern area of the country, leaving their imprint on monuments, architecture, traditions, and popular customs, including language and cuisine.
