A scenic 1½-hour drive through the beautiful Portuguese countryside leads to the medieval town of Obidos, dating back to 308 BC. Since King Diniz first gave the town to his young bride, Obidos has been a wedding gift to all of Portugal's queens.

You will feel as if you are traveling back in time as you explore Obidos' picturesque streets.

Visit the 17th-century Parish Church of Santa Maria, with its magnificent interior in blue and white tiles.

From Pillory Square, continue exploring on your own. Follow the narrow lanes to discover fine shops to browse in, or you may want to hike up to the castle (now a hotel), or explore the old lookout path on top of the city walls. This free time is an excellent opportunity to soak up the ambience of Obidos' charming outdoor cafés .
