The remains of the Roman conquest are felt in the current urban core of the city of Silves. Likely to have been built in that remote period, the first defensive walls of an urban core. The Muslim occupation of the present territory Algarve and the prolonged stay of the Arab peoples and their cultural influence remained from the centuries VIII to XIII, and profoundly marked the history and urban planning of the city.
