Main town gate
Jul. 2020
Great entrance to the town. It is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved gates I have ever seen in Portugal. It’s made up of two low-rise gateways. Between the gateways is a balcony embellished with beautiful blue and white tile panels from 1740, depicting the Passion of Christ. Once past the gateway you see the main street, Rua Direita. If you walk through this gate, you will feel as if you are in a different world. A place that seems to come from a fairy tale.

Visiting Obídos.
Oct. 2020
When you are visiting the medieval village of Obidos, and you have left the car on the parking, then you will enter the village by the “Porta da Sra. Da Piedade” or the “Porta da villa”. By passing through it, you have to look above and so you will see the small oratory located in Porta da Vila, with a baroque balcony and blue and white tiles with allegorical motifs to the Passion of Christ. It was built by King Dom João IV, in gratitude for the protection of the Patroness during the Restoration of Independence in 1640.

Need to know

A 1380 construction! Heavy history in this place! Strollers are common but not so easy to walk through the village due to stones streets and lot of stairs.

One of the doors to enter in Óbidos. What a lovely surprise! Richly decorated in honor of the Virgin Mary. I recomend walking around the village to find more of these beautiful secrets.

Beautiful entrance
Jun. 2019 • Friends
This is the entrance to the old town and it is beautiful with its tiles in blue. Sometimes there are old ladies selling fruit from their garden there(delicious! ) and sometimes someone singing.

We were taken to this place by family as it was recommended. The place is old with nice architecture. This was under renovation however we did see a bit of it and it was really nice. This is worth seeing. The town is also nice to walk around.

Another beautiful old church!
Jun. 2019 • Family
If you’ve traveled anywhere at all, you will know there are millions of beautiful, old churches everywhere, and this is another. You can light a candle or say a prayer while inside. Worth seeing the beautiful alter, windows and ceiling!
