Obidos - the Castle

 

The town of Obidos was settled since Roman times, and the castle and city walls were originally built by the Muslims in the 8th century, and subsequently developed in the following centuries.  The pousada is now located in the castle and the leitão (roast sucking pig) offered by the restaurant can be recommended. :-)

Un joli décor pour un restaurant.
Tom Wilson: C'est vrai! Merci, Martine.
Ce château me fait un peu penser à  celui de Rochester. Il est austère mais plein de charme photographié ainsi en noir et blanc
Tom Wilson: Merci, Marie.

Now this looks like a classic fantasy castle facade!
Tom Wilson: It does, doesn't it?
I bet you enjoyed the place and the food Tom!
Tom Wilson: Indeed, I did, Richard - although I didn't eat at the castle on this occasion. This was my third or fourth visit to the city.
The cuisine isn't a hang over from the past then Tom. Fine photograph of the castle.
Tom Wilson: Well, I guess that roast sucking pig was pretty popular in the Middle Ages, Chad smile
Great foreground shadows, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Mary.
Great looking castle isn't it.
Tom Wilson: It's quite something!
Sounds good!
Tom Wilson: The dish is a specialty of the Bairrada region - where roadside restaurants serve nothing else! Delicious.
Well, that's really something!
Tom Wilson: Pretty imposing, eh?
