Church of Saint Peter is a church converted to a bookstore? Really?Lots of books, if you read Portugese. Not sure why the conversion was made. but... The town of Obidos is a great place to visit, so why not stop here and take it in?

One type of knowledge has been replaced with another, this is an excellent and well-detailed conversion of a historic church into a modern bookshop that inserts modern shop fittings within the historic architecture.

This is an amazingly successful conversion of a church into a bookstore. From what we could tell from the authors' names, the selection of books is excellent. We did not buy any as we do not speak Portuguese.

A church converted in a small nice bookstore, definitely worth a visit. The artist Josefa de Obidos was buried here.

This was a surprise, and I personaly think is has very nicely been converted in a book shop, still a place of respect and silence, and the sales are for a good cause.

No longer a church but a book store. Nothing extra special but an interesting way to utilize the building. Still has the front altar to view.

The church is ancient and would be a fantastic visit if it wasn't turned into a bookshop, what severely impaired the experience.
