Olá, sejam bem-vindos ao grupo Óbidos! Este grupo é bilingue!


Hello and welcome to Óbidos group! This group is bilingual!


A lindíssima vila de Óbidos, de casas brancas enfeitadas com buganvílias e madressilvas foi conquistada aos mouros pelo primeiro rei de Portugal, D. Afonso Henriques, em 1148. Mais tarde, D. Dinis doou-a a sua mulher, a rainha Santa Isabel. Desde então e até 1883, a vila de Óbidos e as terras em redor foram sempre pertença das rainhas de Portugal.Envolvida por uma cintura de muralhas medievais e coroada pelo castelo mouro reconstruído por D. Dinis, que hoje é uma pousada, Óbidos é um dos exemplos mais perfeitos da nossa fortaleza medieval. Como nos tempos antigos, a entrada faz-se pela porta sul, de Santa Maria, embelezada com decoração de azulejos do séc. XVIII. Dentro das muralhas, que sob o sol poente tomam uma coloração dourada, respira-se um alegre ambiente medieval feito de ruas tortuosas, de velhas casas caiadas de branco com esquinas pintadas de azul ou de amarelo, de vãos e janelas manuelinas, lembrando que D. Manuel I (s�c. XVI) aqui fez grandes obras, de muitas flores e plantas coloridas.


The delightful town of Óbidos, with white houses adorned with bougainvilleas and honeysuckle was captured from the Moors by the first king of Portugal, D. Afonso Henriques, in 1148. D. Dinis later presented it to his wife, Queen Santa Isabel. From then until 1883, the town of Óbidos and the surrounding land was always the property of the queens of Portugal. Encircled by a ring of medieval walls and crowned by the Moorish castle rebuilt by D. Dinis, which is now a pousada, Óbidos is one of the most perfect examples of our medieval fortress. It s in olden times, the town is entered through the southern gate of Santa Maria, embellished with eighteenth-century azulejo decoration. Inside the walls, which at sunset take on a golden colouring, one can sense a cheerful medieval ambience of winding streets, old whitewashed houses bordered with blue or yellow, Manueline embrasures and windows,reminding us that King D. Manuel I (sixteenth century) carried out major works here, and masses of colourful flowers and plants.
