It was a spectacular day because we made a stop in the famous town of Obidos which is a very old walled city, I did not enter to write about this site because I already published about Obidos, but at this time of year it is very nice to visit it as it has many Lights and attractions to share with the family, to go to Leiria we must go through Obidos so I recommend you go through here it will be worth it! You will feel like it was lived in the time of the kings with a very old wall that is well preserved!🤩😮😮
Fue un dia espectacular porque hicimos una parada en el famoso pueblo de obidos que es una ciudad muy antigua amurallada, no me dentre a escribir sobre este sitio porque ya publique sobre obidos, pero en esta altura del año es muy bonito visitarlo ya que tiene muchas luces y atracciones para compartir en familia, para ir a Leiria debemos pasar por Obidos asi que te recomiendo pasar por aqui valdra la pena! vas a sentir como se vivia en la epoca de los reyes con una muralla muy antigua y que esta bien preservada!🤓🤭

To summarize Obidos is a walled city that has a palace in the center that is currently a hotel, here royalty lived in the 18th century since this city was a gift that King Denis gave to his wife Isabel, after death From Queen Elizabeth the citadel passed from generation to generation more and more inhabited and with improvements, inside we find more than 3 Catholic churches, but before all this Obidos was a Roman fortification that served as a point of observation and surveillance towards the Atlantic!🏰🏰
Para resumir Obidos es una ciudad amurallada que tiene un palacio en el centro que actualmente es un hotel, aqui habito la realeza en el siglo XVIII ya que esta ciudad fue un regalo que el Rey Denis le dio a su esposa Isabel, luego de la muerte de la reina Isabel la ciudadela paso de generacion en generacion cada vez mas habitada y con mejoras, dentro nos encontramos mas de 3 iglesias catolicas, pero antes de todo esto Obidos fue una fortificacion Romana que servia como punto de observacion y vigilancia hacia el atlantico!👨‍🎓💂‍♂️💂‍♀️👨‍🏫

It was my first time to visit the castle twice I tried and the first time it was closed due to the Covid situation, then on my second attempt it was closed for renovations, and as they say the third time is the charm xD, if you are in the capital I mean, in the center of Lisbon to get here would take an hour and a half of travel, I don't see it very far because you can visit two very interesting places on your way Obidos and Leiria, if you have time you can also go through Peniche, another small coastal city that has some magnificent islands!👨‍🏫👨‍🎓
Era mi primera vez para ir a visitar el castillo dos veces intente y la primera vez estaba cerrado por la situacion del Covid, luego en mi segundo intento estaba cerrado por remodelaciones, y como dicen la tercera es la vencida xD, si estas en la capital osea en el centro de Lisboa llegar aqui te tomaria una hora y media de viaje, no lo veo muy lejos porque podras visitar dos sitios muy interesantes en tu camino Obidos y Leiria, si tienes tiempo tambien puedes pasar por Peniche otra ciudad pequeña costera que tiene unas magnificas islas! 🛺🚙🚩

If you want advice, go directly to Leiria since the castle's hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and on the return go through Obidos because it is decorated around this time and the streets are very beautiful in this Christmas atmosphere, we were here one time so we decided to continue our trip to Leiria🚖🚈🚝
Si quieres un consejo ve directo a Leiria ya que el horario del castillo es de 10:00 a 14:00 y de regreso pasar por Obidos porque esta decorado por estas fechas y las calles son muy bonitas en este ambiente de navidad, estuvimos aqui una hora asi que decidimos continuar nuestro viaje a Leiria🧭🌏

Before building the castle many decades before the Romans had already inhabited the area and the castle was built on one of the highest hills in Leiria so it has a 360 degree view over the entire city, the Romans had seen this advantage and they built some fortifications here to defend the territory! decades later the king of Portugal Henrique Alfonso built the castle here in 1135, Henrique was the first king that Portugal had!🤴🤴🕵️‍♀️
Antes de construir el castillo muchas decadas antes ya los Romanos habian habitado la zona y es que el castillo fue construido en una de las colinas mas altas de leiria por lo que tiene una vista de 360grados sobre toda la ciudad, los Romanos habian visto esta ventaja y construyeron algunas fortificaciones aqui para defender el territorio! decadas despues el rey de Portugal Henrique Alfonso construyo aqui el castillo en el año 1135, Henrique fue el primer rey que tuvo Portugal!☝👆🧏‍♂️

When we read a little about the history of the conquests of Portugal we see that the Portuguese country confronted from the Spanish to the Arabs throughout its history, the idea of the construction of this castle was to defend the southern territory of Portugal since the cities of Lisbon and Santaren belonged to the Arab domain at the time! It did not take long and in 1147 Henrique reconquered Lisbon and Santaren which made the castle of Leiria lose military interest!👳‍♂️🧔🤴
Cuando leemos un poco sobre la historia de las conquistas de Portugal vemos que el pais luso confronto desde los españoles hasta los arabes en toda su historia, la idea de la construccion de este castillo era defender el territorio sur de Portugal ya que las ciudades de Lisboa y Santaren pertenecian al dominio arabe en la epoca! no paso mucho tiempo y en 1147 Henrique reconquisto Lisboa y Santaren lo que hizo que el castillo de Leiria perdiese interes militar!💥💥

As I walk, each square meter of the site tells a story, I am drawn to this space that was rebuilt and they are a set of wells in which the population that lived inside the castle collected rainwater, these cisterns as they were known fulfilled a very function. important since they were essential to irrigate crops and give water to animals, they also served for different uses including personal hygiene!🤔😮
Mientras camino cada metro cuadrado del sitio cuenta una historia, llamo mi atencion este espacio que fue reconstruido y son un conjunto de pozos en el cual la poblacion que vivia dentro del castillo recolectaba agua de lluvia, estos cisternas como se les conocian cumplian una funcion muy importante ya que eran indispensable para regar los cultivos y dar agua a los animales, ademas servian para diferentes usos incluyendo aseo personal!😱💦💦

At the time, it was normal for the kings not to spend money on rebuilding and maintaining structures that no longer served any purpose, so after the reconquests the place was forgotten and was basically in ruins, but after a few decades King Denis was the one who I rebuilt Obidos also wanted to rebuild the castle of Leiria, all this because he wanted to live with his wife Isabel within the castle facilities.💥💥
En la epoca era normal los reyes no gastar dinero en reconstruir y mantener estructuras que ya no cumplian ninguna funcion, por lo que luego de las reconquistas el lugar fue olvidado y quedo basicamente en ruinas, pero pasado unas decadas el rey Denis que fue aquel que reconstruyo Obidos quizo reconstruir tambien el castillo de leiria, todo esto porque quizo vivir con su esposa Isabel dentro de las instalaciones del castillo.🤩🤴👸

Currently the castle is the greatest tourist attraction in Leiria and one of the first Castles to be built in Portugal, therefore it has a great historical value, because the castle had fallen into ruins in the 16th century, some restorations had to be carried out but everything was made with experts so as not to alter the architecture of the time!🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♂️
Actualmente el castillo es la mayor atraccion turistica de Leiria y uno de los primeros Castillos en ser construidos en Portugal por tanto tiene un gran valor historico, debido a que el castillo habia caido en ruinas en el siglo 16 tuvieron que realizarse algunas restauraciones pero todo fue realizado con expertos para no alterar la arquitectura de la epoca!👨‍💻👩‍💻

Inside the castle we find a church that has Gothic architecture and that was built in the 16th century, it bears the name: "Iglesia de Nossa Senhora da Pena" whenever I see these designs inside the churches it comes to my mind that they existed in ancient times characters that were advanced for their times, as they built things that today are impossible to build without heavy tools! all this added to very poor conditions made that people did not live more than 40 years!🤴👸
Dentro del castillo nos encontramos con una iglesia que tiene una arquitectura gotica y que fue construida en el XVI, lleva como nombre: "iglesia de Nossa Senhora da Pena" siempre que veo estos diseños dentro las iglesias viene a mi mente que en la antiguedad existieron personajes que estaban avanzados para sus epocas, ya que construian cosas que hoy en dia son imposible construir sin herramientas pesadas! todo esto sumado a condiciones muy pobres hacian que la gente no viviera mas de 40 años!⛔🛑

King Henrique had everything in mind when he built the castle because we reached an area where we have an excellent view of the city of Leiria, and at the time if Leiria received a military invasion from these windows it was possible to see the enemy many kilometers away. distance I remember reading that all the castle had a communication method that was to light a "fire" that was seen by other castles and warned that they were in the presence of the enemy!💥💂‍♂️💂‍♀️
El rey Henrique tenia todo pensado cuando realizo la construccion del castillo porque llegamos a un area donde tenemos una excelente vista de la ciudad de Leiria, y en la epoca si Leiria recibira una invasion militar desde estas ventanas era posible ver al enemigo a muchos kilometros de distancia recuerdo haber leido que todos los castillo tenian un metodo de comunicacion que era prender una "fogata" que era vista por otros castillos y alertaban que estaban en presencia del enemigo!👨‍💻👩‍💻

This is my favorite part because we entered a museum where objects that were found in many excavations that were carried out here within the castle facilities are exhibited, there is still an area where an old Roman citadel is preserved and that is where they got many artifacts that They were used by the Romans, we can find from vases that were used to drink wine, to arrowheads that were probably used for combat!🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♂️
Esta es mi parte favorita porque entramos a un museo donde se exhiben objetos que fueron encontrados en muchas excavaciones que se realizaron aqui dentro de las instalaciones del castillo, aun hay un area donde se conserva una antigua ciudadela romana y que es donde consiguieron muchos artefactos que fueron usados por los romanos, podemos encontrarnos desde jarrones que sirvieron para beber vino, hasta puntas de flechas que probablemente fueron usadas para combates!👨‍⚖️👩‍⚖️

The Romans were a very advanced civilization for their time, they were the first to create a system of conduits that served to bring clean water from rivers and mountains, they also created sewer systems, so they were always known for being very clean, here in the museum we can see tools that were used for the construction of materials, clothes, some to perform numerical calculations! and that is why they became one of the greatest world powers for many years!😮😮
Los Romanos fueron una civilizacion muy avanzada para su epoca, fueron los primeros en crear un sistema de conductos que servian para traer agua limpia desde rios y montañas, tambien crearon sistemas de clocas, por lo que fueron siempre conocidos por ser muy limpios, aqui en el museo podemos ver herramientas que eran usadas para la construccion de materiales, ropas, algunos para realizar calculos numericos! y fue por eso que llegaron a ser una de las mayores potencias mundiales por muchos años!🛑🧠🧠

It was impressive to see bones of people who lived in the castle facilities, there is an area that was like a "cemetery" where some bones of Portuguese who lived in the sixteenth century have been discovered, remember that the Romans did not bury their loved ones. burned, even with the arrival of the Catholic and Christian Church the Romans always respected their traditions! So what did the Romans do to remember their loved ones? those that were important were immortalized with sculptures!👆😱😱
Fue impresionante ver huesos de personas que habitaban en las instalaciones del castillo, hay un area que fue como un "cementerio" donde se han descubierto algunos huesos de Portugueses que vivieron en el siglo XVI, recordemos que los Romanos no enterraban a sus seres queridos eran quemados, mismo con la llegada de la iglesia Catolica y Cristiana los Romanos respetaban siempre sus tradiciones! entonces que hacia los Romanos para recordar a sus seres queridos? los que eran importantes los inmortalizaban con esculturas!🕵️‍♂️🛑

It was not so literally but it felt very strange to be sitting on this throne, I imagine how many kings sat in chairs like these, but in the castle of Leiria you have this replica where you can feel like a king!😮😱🤴

This to you is a simple gate but it was actually built for some very important purposes that could save the entire life of an army! When the castle was at war and the king ordered a retreat through this hidden door, all the soldiers of the castle could escape! At the same time, this area is made up of many hills with difficult terrain to walk and climb, but being in a strategic place here, soldiers also entered to reinforce the Portuguese attack!👁🦾🧠🦿
Esto para ti es una simple puerta pero en realidad fue construida con algunos propositos muy importante que podria salvar toda la vida de un ejercito! cuando el castillo se encontraba en guerra y el rey ordenaba una retirada por esta puerta que estaba escondida podian escapar todos los soldados del castillo! al mismo tiempo esta zona esta echa de muchas colinas con terrenos complicado para caminar y subir por el, pero al estar en un sitio estrategico por aqui tambien entraban soldados para reforzar el ataque Portugues!💂‍♂️💂‍♀️💂‍♂️
