What To Expect
Get in touch with the city's soul through your senses. Experience the city as you walk its street by yourself, free from the confines of a group or a time frame. See the harmony of the architectural designs of the houses and churches. Take a walk around the historical walls and feel their texture. Try out the liquor "Ginjinha" and the city's delicious regional fruits. Listen to the music in the streets and the hustle and bustle of the people. Breathe in the scent of the flowers that decorate the streets. These and more on an unforgettable do-it-yourself tour in Obidos.
Also, don't worry about getting lost and wondering where to go with the help of a recorded interactive guide, your perfect traveling companion enabling you to enjoy your chosen destination very much at your own pace. This interactive guide is extremely easy and intuitive to use and it is provided along with the necessary equipment at the beginning of your DIY Tour.
Of course, do not miss on what Obidos has to offer! Drop by the Town Gate or Our Lady of Sorrow, the patron saint of Obidos. Then check out St. Peter's Church and discover its medieval foundation and still has its original portal. It was renovated in the second half of the 16th century.
Then visit Pousada of Óbidos, the first in Portugal to be built from an historical building. It is located inside what was once the Paço do Alcaide. The St. James Church is also a sight not to be missed. Over the centuries, the royal family attended the St. James Church during their stays in Óbidos. The church was founded by king Sancho in 1186.
Our last recommendation, St. Mary's Church of Óbidos. Legend has it that St. Mary's Church of Óbidos is located in the exact same spot where the old Visigoth temple used to be. The temple was later turned into a mosque. When the Christian conquest by Alphonse I took place in 1148, it became a catholic church.
