Reviews from our customers
This is how holiday rental owners described Obidos
show more and a group of houses; this is Óbidos, an integral and faithful remaining Portuguese burg from 300 years ago."
It was in these terms that Ramalho Ortigão remembers the secular existence of this magic place, full of history, culture and patrimony.
In fact, Óbidos is a treasure from our country, this medieval village can’t release a long visit because of its several points of interest. Beyond the Village Door, that has in there interior an oratorical dedicated to Nª. Sr.ª. da Graça, it is instantaneously possible to find an enormous attraction that the white houses and the sinuosity of the streets suggest upon the visitant. Churches, windows, staircases and yards are other reference points.
The Óbidos Castle, where the Inn is to be found, might have Roman origins; nevertheless, it was under the Arabic domination that the Fortress won a certain status.
Lágoa de Óbidos (Lagoon) is ideal for the practice of nautical sports, the “Eburobrittium” roman city, the golf course of Praia d’El Rey are other elements that certainly deserve a visit.
Important cultural events, such as the famous “Chocolate Festival”, the “Medieval ...

Óbidos is located in the West Region, also known as “Silver Coast”, less than 1 hour from the Lisbon Airport, and is famous for its well preserved landscape and natural beauty. This region is also a renowned destination for golf and water sports, for instance, the RIP CURL CUP takes place in this region since 2009.
With a mild climate, unspoiled white sanded beaches and a vast gastronomic offer, the Silver Coast offers the perfect location for serene times of “renewed authenticity”.
