Photographer's Note


Town Gate
It is the main entrance to the castle. Here, one can admire an oratory with a balcony covered with 18th century tiles representing the Passion of Christ. One can find the inscription referring to the Patroness Saint of Óbidos, Our Lady of Sorrow, stating the following: “The Virgin, Our Lady was conceived without original sin”.
There are also two interesting details at the Town Gate are: the painted ceiling, recently restored, representing a crown of thorns; and the double doors typical of Portuguese Castles.
