Four of us drove in from nearby Peniche for the afternoon and stayed through dinner. Yes, it is crowded with buses and lots of (older) tourists. This was a Sunday, and even in the off-season, it felt cramped. After dinner-time, however, it thinned out quite...More

Charming hilltop village well deserving of it's UNESCO designation. Streets are very narrow and can be virutally impassible during fesitivals and high season. And cruise ships include Obidos in their day trips, so be forewarned!

This was a day well spent in beautiful, autumnal, sunny weather. It was busy with tourist but most disappeared once away from the main drag. Walking the walls is a must if you’ve not got vertigo. The backstreets are a photographers dream and there’s something...More

A really amazing small walled town with a citadel and open ramparts along much of the way. The town can be very crowded in the picturesque but narrow streets. Do yourself a favor if you are in good health and not scared of heights but...More

We stopped off here and enjoyed the delights of this walled town. Very picturesque, with great views around every corner, but, as you will imagine, your experience is somewhat blunted by the the volume of visitors, who have every right to stroll just as your...More

Obidos is a stunning, picturesque, medieval town rich in literary and artistic sensibility. I’m glad we spent a few nights here but you could easily cover the main sites during a (full) day trip. You absolutely must try the Ginjha. It’s the best in Portugal...More

crammed with lots of souvenir shops, restaurants, pubs and tasting rooms. Per the tour bus arrivals mid- morning, suggest visiting the wall and village early, so you can secure a place to eat lunch before the crowds descend on the town.

There is a large parking lot as you approach the main gate to the town, can’t miss it. Pay from 9 am to 8 pm but free on weekends.

Apologies for the delay. I could spend three or four days in Obidos, but if time is an issue, a day trip from Lisbon or one night would be fine. In terms of hotels, the pousada, operated by Pestana Hotels is... More
