>>> Óbidos <<< Historical City of the Amazônia

Óbidos is a historical city, it is in the left edge of the River Amazon in the interior of the state of Pará, distant 1100 km of Belém (it saw fluvial). In front of city the edges of the river become narrower and with this the river is also deeper, forming if one may use the expression in the region the throat of the River Amazon (or the buckle of the river as they prefer others). In this point the width of the river is of about 1890 meters in the normal stream bed. Thanks to this geographic formation, in the place two fortress in century XVII had been constructed to protect the interior of the Amazônia of invaders, but according to historians, an only shot was never gone off for the local cannons with intention to reject any invasion.
