    Good place to hang out, relax and observe nature. I would advise a picnic, has several picnic parks, from both sides of the pond.

    Nothing special. If this in the region, worth the visit. Otherwise not worth moving there.

    The place is definitely a wonder. For those who think it's a snob, fooled is very well prepared to receive all kinds of tourists. To start is a beautiful location due to the surrounding green and with the expansion of tourism in the area now is possible to practice various water sports on the Lake, and so a day goes great with a picnic at the edge of water. If you like to blow off steam through the other side of the pond and take some home to mussels if you see so many people do.

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.
