Wedding Present Town

Striking views of the Estremadura area and a famous medieval castle gave Obidos the name of Wedding Present Town. In the 13th century, King Denis I gave the town to his wife, Queen Isabel, as a gift. The town sits inside a fortified wall and is speckled with widely recognized bright white houses. Though this destination is often crowded with tourists, its historical and romantic atmosphere prevail as you tour its winding cobbled side streets. Outside the town's walls lies the central gate, which opens up to Rua Direita, a main street lined with shops. Use our Portugal travel planning site to plan your trip to Obidos and other destinations in Portugal.

Where to stay in Obidos

Just outside the medieval walls that have long protected the town, Obidos' range of lodging options near its historical center provides easy access to winding streets and main tourist sights by foot. Many of the hotels in the center are housed in historical buildings and mansions rather than typical cookie-cutter international chains, yet they still offer plenty of amenities including pools, restaurants, and comfortable rooms. Obidos in particular also features a sizeable array of private rooms and villas for rent, so consider staying at one of them to get away from the traditional hotel scene--you may even score accommodations in a historical Portuguese home.
