Medieval village of Obidos
A place where times seems to have stopped...
The medieval town of Obidos is a magical place, with centuries of history among its stone walls and cobblestone streets. The white houses with blue and yellow stripes along the village are adorned with vibrantly coloured bougainvillea, creating an idyllic setting that seems to be from the pages of a fairy tale. A perfect location to simply wander around, taste the traditional cherry liqueur in a chocolate cup, or visit the quaint handicraft shops.
The town's cultural agenda together with its rich historical heritage make it a vibrant place to visit and live. And there is always something interesting to see and do for the entire family!
Around the Castle walls, you will find several traditional villages where the "real Portugal" remains undisturbed. Small communities where the locals welcome with open arms and there is space to enjoy the fresh air, plenty of sunshine, and mild temperatures all year round.
