Castle of Obidos★★★☆☆
The area was settled by the Lusitanos (since the 4th century BC) and Romans in the first century, but later occupied by Visigoths during the 5th and 6th century and Muslims, who were responsible for fortifying the town in the 8th century.
During the Christian Reconquista, forces under the first Portuguese king Afonso I (1112-1185) defeated the settlement's defenses through a ruse, but the castle was never completely conquered until the reign of King D. Sancho I in 1195.
Today, the Castle of obidos is a well-preserved medieval castle.
