Beautiful medieval castle overlooking Obidos, with great souvenir an food shops. Known for its local traditional liqueur “Ginga”, a cherry liqueur, served in a chocolate cup. Great town, not to be missed, specially for families

The castle has a medieval fair every year and the whole castle comes alive with most people in medieval costume. The whole event is lively with music and the best food ever. Very economical and great for the whole family. Should not be missed.

Beautiful medieval castle overlooking Obidos. Lovely architecture. We were able to visit the place from outside only as it was not open. The walls are open to visitors for free. The panoramic views from the top of the walls are great. Bring a good zoom...More

You can't enter the castle as such, but they've made an area that is like the medieval times, incorporating it. You can take photos in the stocks, order food and drinks at an old style stand up bar, etc. It's like walking through a film...More

The castle is the main thing in Obidos, it will keep you busy for a few hours including walking the ram parts and exploring the walled town. The church inside the walls is also worth a visit.
