A scenic 11⁄2-hour drive through the beautiful Portuguese countryside to the medieval town of Obidos, which dates back to 308 BC. Since King Dinis gave his young bride the town, Obidos has been given as a wedding gift to all of Portugal’s queens. You will feel as if you are traveling back in time as you explore the picturesque streets.
Visit the 17th-century Parish Church of Santa Maria, with its magnificent interior tiles in blue and white. From Pillory Square, continue exploring the narrow lanes by yourself. There are fine shops to browse in, or you may want to hike up to the castle (now a hotel), or explore the old lookout path on top of the wall encircling the city. Some free time in Obidos offers an excellent opportunity to do some great craft shopping or soak up the ambience in one of the charming outdoor cafés.
