    The castle is located in the highest part of Obidos is undoubtedly the main attraction of the village! Unfortunately, the Castle has been transformed into a stylish hotel. The walls can be covered carefully xké pretette not. From the top of the walls of spectacular views over the whole village!

    A small picturesque village which to the stroll inviting. With a tour of the castle walls, you get an even better overview of the place and the environment.

    This is a really fun location. The town is awash of bright white and blue buildings with many little streets within the walled city offering tons of exploration. A good bit of tourist shops here offering a nice selection of mementos. The castle is a great place to explore and see the surrounding lands. Take care along the walls though, it's high and with no handrails.

    You can walk around the top of the town walls. No safety railings here. But what a great experience. You can imagine being a soldier here in olden times defending the castle. Really shouldn't miss it!

    Great village to visit. You can walk across the castle city walls for great views and a small challenge for people afraid of heights. Small shops focused on local products for tourists are to be found within the castle walls in the main street.

    This place is fantastic. You can walk all the moor walls, visit the inside, where there's a nice little sprawling city and a keep. The place just out of the keep hosts an annual medieval fair that's on my list of next fairs to visit.

    Great family trip. Nice cozy little shops and restaurants. The walk along the top of the wall can be hazardous for small children as it is unguarded.

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.
