Obidos, Porta de Vila – The main gateway into the town is pretty deceptive, built to prevent cavalry from charging the gates!
Obidos Battlements – A fine example of a Portuguese walled town. Walk along the battlements from Porta de Vila to the castle.
Obidos Castle – Encircled by the ancient town walls, this medieval castle has stood at the top of Obidos hill since the early Moors era (8th – 11th century).
Rua Direita – A bustling street lined with shops selling crafts and gift items. This is the main street of Obidos. There are lots of great restaurants nearby.
Igreja de Santa Maria and Praca de Santa Maria – A beautiful religious building and the main church of Obidos, is positioned in a quaint and picturesque square.
