Beautiful and incredibly scenic town and the views from the castle walls are fantastic. However the town is very small and there is not a great deal to do after wandering around once unless you love collecting endless tat or souvenirs. Surrounding restaurants are largely...More

We loved Obidos village. The narrow streets, friendly locals, great shops, music. It is something we’ll definitely remember from our trip. Don’t miss it.

Amazing town with bustling streets- horse rides and little shops everywhere. Kids ages 5-7 loved it. So did parents.

Obidos used to be a charming little town. However it has been taken over by masses of tourists and junky souvenir shops. If that's what you want go there. If you are looking for a more authentic travel experience, go elsewhere.

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
