Benin City is the capital, and largest city of Edo State in southern Nigeria. It is situated approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi) north of the Benin River and 320 kilometres (200 mi) by road east of Lagos. Benin City is the centre of Nigeria's rubber industry, and oil production is also a significant industry.It was the most important city of the Edo kingdom of Benin, which flourished during the 13th to the 19th century. It had important trade relations with Portugal during the last centuries before being destroyed in 1897 by a British punitive raid. Many treasures and artefacts, including the Benin Bronzes were taken by the British invaders who followed up their victory with a military occupation of the area. Read more in wiki.
