Top of our list for perfect Easter breaks in Portugal has to be the medieval village of Obidos. Here the Easter celebrations last for two weeks! Highlights include an illuminated procession by torchlight though the cobbled streets of the Passion and the death of Christ. A busy tourist spot, Obidos is best visited as a day trip in the morning. For those of you wishing to stay overnight, there are a small number of boutique hotels with the atmosphere becoming very calm and tranquil in the evenings.
Exploring rural villages, olive oil groves, cork factories and wineries....what better way to spend a Spring day in Portugal! If you are craving some picturesque views and even a few megalithic monuments and dolmens then a day trip to Alentejo is a perfect wonderful choice. Pass through fields of yellow, dotted with cork trees while relishing the stillness and beauty of the area.
Lisbon on a mild Spring day is a great city break. With the tourist crowds a fraction of what they are in the summer, you can enjoy meandering the streets and winding hills and relish the shorter queues to Lisbon´s many monuments and museums. Perfect places to visit are Jeronimos Monastery, Torre de Belem and the grand Praca do Comercio.
