What To Expect

Obidos Village
You will visit Obidos is the finest example of a Portuguese walled town, and is one of the best tourist destinations of the Lisbon region.
Historically, Obidos was presented to the Queen of Portugal on her wedding day, a tradition that began with Queen Urraca in 1214 and continued until the 19th century. This royal patronage has left an enduring legacy of pride within the town, and today it is one of the most characterful towns of central Portugal.

You will explore Obidos; there are narrow-cobbled streets, traditional painted houses, and an imposing medieval castle.

The region surrounding Obidos is as equally fascinating, there is the working fishing port of Peniche, the pristine beaches of Lagoa de Obidos and even Europe’s largest collection of Buddha statues, at the Buddha Eden. Obidos is a great base from which to exploring this enthralling region, and the town is rapidly becoming a popular destination for a holiday.
This article will provide a tourist guide to Obidos, and provides links to further in-depth information.

Beautiful day in Obidos, Nazare and Alcobasa!
Nancy_G, 16-12-2019
Hugo was a WONDERFUL guide and we enjoyed getting to know him and the history he shared about the visits to Obidos and Alcobasa. This was an interesting and varied day with medieval village, chapel with beautiful blue tile on all the walls, Nazare to see the high waves and fishing village, then on to Alcobasa with delicious pastries and a visit to the monastery. All in all a lovely and memorable day that introduced us to Portugal, history and their foods. High recommend a day with Hugo. Many thanks!
Le guide nous a amené aussi visité Nazare et Peniche

Après avoir visité la cité médiévale d'Obidos (expérience intéressante) d'une durée d'environ 2h30, le guide (Diogo) nous a ensuite amené visiter la ville de Nazare, puis de Peniche. Ce fut une expérience intéressante de voir la mer et les immenses vagues où se déroule des compétitions de surf. Merci au guide.
