The rolling hills north of Lisbon are home to the medieval town of Obidos, a treasure trove of art and architecture, and a half-day tour with your private guide brings this exquisite wealth to life.
Just an hour from Lisbon, through vineyards and lush countryside, the ancient town of Obidos is a remarkable collection of churches and palaces, glazed tiles and paintings. Given to the Queen by the King in the 13th century on the occasion of their wedding, it retains much of its original charm, including the medieval castle walls that surround the town and the beautiful Santa Maria church.
Be sure to make time for a little chocolate cup of Ginjnha, a cherry liquor from the region, while losing yourself in the narrow streets of this atmospheric town.
