  • It rained tt day! otherwise with a bit of Sun is very nice! filled with small shops in tt very artisanal kind! the little thing in the corner, it's the small chocolate cup with the ginja (cherry liquor) + a cherry tt €1 is the darling of the corner praline! According to the legend, Lord of the corner fell in love with a young woman passing each year vacation at Obido she loved this fortified village, and he asked her to marry by offering the village! She agreed and became Queen Isabella, if I remember correctly! The walls are not too equipped with ramps and protection markets are high! walking around the village is very well!
