Óbidos, charming medieval village

Óbidos: the charming medieval village

Have you ever heard about Óbidos?

A charming fortified town that allows you to have a brief look at the medieval times in Portugal and taste the famous, local liqueur – “Ginja de Óbidos”!

Óbidos is specially known for its magic medieval castle that was built between the 12th and the 14th centuries. This lovely village is also surrounded by the ancient walls that can be visited by foot. Both the castle and these walls were remodeled during the reign of King D. Dinis I. Also not to forget, the very well-known traditional white houses within the walls.

If you’re thinking about coming to Portugal in summer, the month of July might be a good option! For two weeks, the Óbidos village recreates the spirit of the medieval times!

Óbidos is located on the Atlantic Ocean coast, and is roughly one hour’s drive away from the Lisbon city. This place can be included in a tailor-made tour that includes Peniche, Nazaré, and Caldas da Rainha, and a bit further Fátima, Batalha and Tomar.
