Trading post

A trading post is a place or establishment, which may or may not be fortified, usually located next to a port, and which functioned as a trading post for trading with the locals or the merchants traveling there. Much of the Portuguese commerce in the territories discovered at the time of the Discoveries was effected through the factories founded there. The first of these factories was the Arguim factory on the African coast. In the Gulf of Guinea, another factory was founded, Feitoria da Mina, where the slave trade, ivory, chilli and gold were developed. In the East, an extensive network of trading posts was founded that allowed Portugal to become the most powerful merchant state in the world.
