Discover the Enchanting Village of Obidos with Premiere Tours

Nestled on a hilltop and encircled by ancient walls, Obidos is one of Portugal’s most picturesque and well-preserved medieval villages. Stepping into Obidos feels like traveling back in time, with its narrow cobblestone streets, whitewashed houses adorned with colorful flowers, and the imposing presence of the 12th-century castle. This charming village is a must-visit destination, and there’s no better way to experience it than with a private tour from Premiere Tours.

The Allure of Obidos

Obidos, often referred to as the “Wedding Present Town,” was a gift from King Dinis to Queen Isabel in the 13th century. This tradition of royal gifts has left Obidos with a rich historical heritage and a romantic ambiance that continues to enchant visitors. The town is a labyrinth of winding streets, each leading to stunning architectural gems, quaint shops, and delightful cafes.

One of the highlights is the Obidos Castle, which now functions as a luxury hotel. The castle offers panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, making it an ideal spot for photography enthusiasts. The town also boasts the Igreja de Santa Maria, a beautiful church with a stunning interior decorated with azulejos (traditional Portuguese tiles) from the 17th century.

Another must-see attraction is the Livraria de Santiago, a unique bookstore housed in a former church. For those with a sweet tooth, the local delicacy, Ginja de Obidos, a cherry liqueur often served in a chocolate cup, is a treat not to be missed.
