    I had read that it was worth doing "a leap" to Obidos and indeed the tips were true! The village is beautiful and all I recommend it too! Narrow streets, whitewashed houses and blue, quaint shops and of course the Castle and the walls that enclose the whole thing! Don't miss the taste of liquor into the cup of chocolate ... Very good! The walk to the village would "steal" a little over 2 hours ... Council to put this step in your itinerary!

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.
