  • My wife, two children, relatives and I stopped in Obidos on the way from Porto to Lisbon. It was definitely worth the stop. We walked around for about an hour. There were many stores and restaurants. ...  more »
  • Óbidos is a medieval village surrounded by walls, with pretty streets where the white, blue and yellow are on the walls of the houses. You can walk on the walls in order to have an overview of the city. Do not forget to drink a small glass of Ginja in a chocolate cup ;)

  • I liked the surrounding streets, the local shops, the smell of roasted chestnut. The friendliness of the locals. I hated the CARISSIMO parking. It's a shame to call people to the Christmas village and cover both the car parking. Place to visit but in passing.
