Lisbon • PortugalPousada Castelo Óbidos
Such is the beauty of this walled village that it became known as the "gift of the queens", as it was part of the dowry of many of them. Built in the 18th century, it is considered one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal.
Don’t miss out on enjoying a glass of this popular ginja liqueur (a type of cherry plentiful in the region). Try it with ginja, without ginja and in a cup of chocolate, for a varied flavour experience.
Located a few kilometres from the coast, Óbidos allows you to quickly reach Peniche, Areia Branca, Foz do Arelho and other beautiful beaches, ideal for water sports.
The medieval streets preserve chapels and churches, doors and windows, all worth a photo or two. The local trade gives you the opportunity to take home some beautiful memories. Just an hour’s drive from Lisbon, Óbidos is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Portugal.
A unique ingredient features in workshops and show cooking, shops and street food, activities and even fashion shows. Every year, this event draws thousands of chocolate-lovers to Óbidos between February and March.
To the sound of rabecas and alaúdes (both types of stringed instrument), dressed in costumes and armour, Óbidos returns to the Middle Ages. The market offers duels, street entertainers, currency exchange, games, taverns and medieval suppers.
The town’s Literary Festival brings together writers, poets and artists in a creative ensemble, with round tables, interviews, gatherings, concerts, exhibitions and activities for children.
In the month of December, Óbidos becomes an authentic Santa Claus village, complete with elves, reindeer, snowmen and plenty of fun. A circus, puppets, concerts, ice rinks and donkey rides are just some of the activities to experience.
