We stopped and wandered the streets of this wonderful walled city great food, lots of shops, and for the fit folks - a walk along the top of the wall. Well worth the stop - and self proclaimed “chocolate” center of Portugal!

As you approach Obidos what stands out is the still intact 14th century wall surrounding it and the castle which is now a pousada. You can climb the medieval walls and walk around the city and view the roof tops from above. The village itself...More

Obidos is a quaint walled village, full of history, quirky cobbled streets, with lots to discover. Every alley and street holds a hidden gem, and you can get lost in the maze for a while. The huge walls wrap the town, and you can walk...More

This is a small village inside walls. A bit touristy, but stop anyway. You are able to climb to the top of the walls, but there are no railings so if heights bother you, just admire from below. We saw some women trying to climb...More

Obidos is worth the visit. The prettiest little village .... as if Disney went legitimate and Portuguese at the same time. If you get tired of all the schlock shops on the Direct Street, try the higher altitude one that parallels it. Quieter and really...More

Obidos, Portugal is a quaint village on a hillside. The city is a walled village, built at the time when war with the Moors & Spain were common. To this day, 300 people still live within the walls of Obidos.

There is a large parking lot as you approach the main gate to the town, can’t miss it. Pay from 9 am to 8 pm but free on weekends.

Apologies for the delay. I could spend three or four days in Obidos, but if time is an issue, a day trip from Lisbon or one night would be fine. In terms of hotels, the pousada, operated by Pestana Hotels is... More
