AQUAE FLAVIAE. THIS WAS THE NAME THAT THE ROMANS TITLED THE CURRENT CITY OF CHAVES KNOWN FOR HAVING ONE OF THE BEST HOT SPRINGS ACROSS EUROPE. THERE ARE ALSO IN THE REGION ROMAN WINE PRESSES ESCAVATED IN THE ROCK THAT PROVE THE EXTREME SUITABILITY OF THESE LANDS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF WINE; ALSO FINDING TRACES OF GOLD EXPLOITATION NEARBY. THE STRONG AND ABUNDANT SUNSHINE GENERATES HERE A BRIGHT AND LUMINOUS HONEY AND A REMARKABLE OLIVE OIL. FACED WITH THE REICHNESS OF THESE INGREDIENTS, THE CHOICE FOR THE NAME OF THE SAPIENTIA ROMANA PRODUCTS WAS OBVIOUS (COULDN'T HAVE BEEN ANYTHING OTHER THAN):AQUAE FLAVIAE, SAPIENTIA ROMANA.
