    More about Óbidos
    3 Villages Private Tour

    Óbidos is within castle walls

    Not all built at the same time or by the order of one king. Started with a small watch tower and then a castle and its primitive walls. Access is through 4 gates and 2 doors. It has two keep towers, the last defensive resort and a place of command of troops.

    Óbidos is known as the Queens' Town

    The relation of the town with the queens is ancestral. The lands were donated to all Queens of Portugal from 1210 to 1834. It has always been one of the most fascinating towns in Portugal due to the care of all of them.

    Obidos is also famous for its bookstores

    14, to be more precise. One of them in a church. The town administration developed a literature programme that included an international literary festival, Folio. In 2015, Óbidos was recognized by UNESCO as Village of Literature.

    Fantastic walking tour at Obidos with a great guide

    "A perfect way to see all three places - Alcobaca, Nazare and Obidos. Our tour guide Luis made the trip. His knowledge of history and storytelling kept us all engaged. Between the architecture at Monastery of Alcobaca, and the ancient Obidos, it was a day we'll never forget. Highly highly recommend!!!"

    Alcobaca, Nazare and Obidos - Five stars all around!

    "No better way to see Alcobaca, Nazare and Obidos. Our guide was a wealth of information but also let us explore on our own. The Monastery is awesome in its own right, but our tour guide made the experience so much more interesting. Well worth the tour - thank you!"
