Obidos, Portugal, is a walled town and is located between Lisbon and Porto very close to the Atlantic Ocean. Obidos is charming destination to explore with its narrow cobblestone streets, traditional painted houses, and medieval castle.
Obidos has been home to Portugese royalty and the townspeople take great pride in caring for their community. Its bright, cheery streets are filled with cute little shops run by the locals who could not be friendlier.
This church is the view off the veranda of this home with its beautiful, tiled floor and large clay urns filled with bright flowers. The pillars add to the stately feeling.
This veranda, overlooking the church square and the cobblestone street, is perfect for sipping the local Ginjinha d’Obidos (cherry liqueur) in its chocolate cup, listening to the local musicians play, and spending a leisurely afternoon enjoying the perfect 70ish degree weather this tourist destination experiences year-round.
I will remember this place for the rest of my life as a pretty city I would return to for a lengthier stay.
