Forming squared, with one thirty meters of side, the casteleira wall, strengthened of cylindrical torreőes in the faces northern and austral, as well as in the vertices of the northwest and southwest, and quadrangular towers in north-east and the South-East one, surrounds a place of fetichism in which if it raised paço of alcaide, whose ruins gave to new life the generality workmanship I restore undertaken has few years for the General Direcçăo of the Buildings and National Monuments. A robust tower, adossada the Face occidental person of the wall, integrates if in the casteleiro set. The eastern face of the wall constitutes, for thus saying, the nuclear part of that involves castle and village, and that, drawing out for one and another side in south direcçăo, it goes to close in tip, covered about way quilometro, in the call Tower it Torch, afectando thus, very approximately, the configuration of a estirado isosceles triangle. In its set, the current castle of Óbidos exactly represents the final phase of a constructive series that is possible to follow, for times documentary.
