  • Be sure to walk the lower street at some point (maybe coming back from the castle) so that you can get a sense of more of the genuine life of the people of Obidos. There are several very old Romanesqu...  more »
  • This is a tourist trap that has been well preserved and is a good balance between preservation and commercial tourism. There is a hotel in the actual castle, with views all around. Loved this place  more »
  • Loved staying inside the walled town. You can feel the Medieval presence everywhere. The oldest part of town is still surrounded by the fortress walls. You can walk the walls which was a great thrill ...  more »

  • Spectacular castle! And the town is even more spectacular. I am so glad our local friend took us to Obidos!!!
  • Great Castle surrounded by long fortress. The best way to explore this place is to take a walk through edges of these walls.
  • The castle is fun - make sure you check out the summer festival - well worth the visit. Free internet for tourist if needed - a quick signup procedure - and no spam following you around after - so safe to use. Know your prices some items are a good deal.
  • Amazing castle in a lovely town, functions now as a hotel and a restaurant. The restaurant is a bit pricey but the food and the service is adequate to that. You can walk all around the castle wall. Wander around the town, its streets and buildings are truly picturesque.
  • What a beautiful and charming little town. A great place to spend an afternoon wondering about. Special place.
