The Óbidos tour is great for those interested in seeing a very old fortified city. Due to its excellent location by the sea and as the arms of the Lagoon reached the hill, these lands have always been inhabited, which is confirmed by the Lower Paleolithic station of Outeiro da Assenta.
Here a Celtibero castro was formed, facing the west. It is known that here the Phoenicians traded, and today more properly than the Romans here settled down, being probable that the south tower of the Facho, had its origin in a watchtower of Roman construction, like advanced outpost of the city of Eburobrittium , a large urban city found and in an archeological work phase.
On January 11, 1148, the first king, D. Afonso Henriques, supported by Gonçalo Mendes da Maia, took Óbidos to the Arabs, after the siege of November. The Cruise of Memory is a simple monument of the time, later restored. Obidos belonged to the defensive pentagon (of the five castles), from the center of the kingdom, idealized by the Templars.
