The baroque façade of the Iglesia de Santa Isabel de Portugal, born in the royal house of Aragón and married to King James of Portugal.

Over the years, much of Spanish and Portuguese histories would intersperse each other as they sought to Christianise the world, but more so to create colonies for its trade and territorial expansion.
