Itinerary

Stop At: Obidos Village, Obidos Portugal

This beautiful medieval village is not to be missed and it's a fine example of a Portuguese walled town. There is lots to see here. We start at the Porta de Vila – the main gateway into the town and it's pretty deceptive, built to prevent cavalry from charging the gates! Then we walk down the Rua Direita - a bustling street lined with shops selling crafts and gift items. This is the main street of Obidos. We stop at Igreja de Santa Maria and Praca de Santa Maria - a beautiful religious building and the main church of Obidos, is positioned in a quaint and picturesque square.
