Peace treaty of 1668, Luso-Spanish

   Portugal and Spain signed the Peace Treaty of 13 February 1668 that ended the War of Restoration, which had continued since 1641. The negotiations were mediated by England, which guaranteed that the peace would be kept. By this important document, both states promised to return their respective conquests during that war, with the exception of the city of Ceuta in Morocco, which declared for Spanish sovereignty and was not returned to Portugal. Spain's signing of the treaty also signified that Portuguese independence was definitively recognized.
