When we arrrived at Obidos from the bus from Caldas, we were faced with a parade of medieval characters and right there and then, i knew we were in for a treat. My wife and i had the most fun in years that day.

This was an amazing experience. Like travelling back in time. Everything was so well done and the participants weared clothes " medeval style" Food was great, served in clay plates and cups and a lot of great activities to participate in. Archery was great fun.

The ticket was less then 10 Euro and there were parades, concerts and lots of interesting things to buy. Be sure to try Hidromel ( The worlds oldest manmade alcoholic beverage, very tasty and different)

Highly recomended.

In this medieval fair you pay 6€ for the ticket and you have access to many shows, like singing and dancing groups, clowns, jousts, the castel assault (if it's friday)...
The atmosphere is great: it really gives you the feeling of the medieval age because everyone is dressed and behaving properly, which, along with the medieval music, gives you the feeling of being a king or a queen in the 1400's.
Inside the fair, the food is not that expensive at all (the most expensive things are the sweets and coffes) and you have access to beautiful spaces to eat: they really did accomplish that medieval atmosphere with those huge wooden tables and misterious little corners.

The Medieval Fair of Obidos tales place in July each year. It is in the Casle and for a modest entry fee you are reated to an afternoon of street parades, jousting, music and food. The food stalls/restaurants appear to be from the 1500's but the taste is evcellent. All in all a great day out!
