Travel Tips for Óbidos

luminescence

by arasnosliw

The soft glowing luminescene of the burning offeratory candles in the churches is rather soothing. While I was not in the church to pray, it was nice to sit down on an pew and reflect for a moment. Kind of brought back memories of when I used to be a Catholic a long time ago. If I had any cash on me I would have donated a bit and lit one myself. Portugal is an extremely Catholic country (although seemingly most people, especially those of the younger generations, practice strictly out of custom); it is not surprising to see candles everywhere.

City Walk

by Imaniac

Take a stroll through the city, you won't regret it. Each and every building in Obidos is protected by the government. The windy and sometimes narrow streets are lovely to wander around in. Be amazed by the many beautiful white plastered buidlings. Go and have a refreshment on the main street, or buy some typical Portuguese souvenirs. You may also want to walk on top of the city walls. From there you'll get a great view of the city.

Timings

by solopes

Batalha, Alcobaça, Nazaré and Obidos are so close that it is common to put them all in a single day trip from Lisbon. Of course, things must be seen in a rush, and those who like to feel the places at ease and with time may get disappointed. Among all those places, the ones that may demand more time are Nazaré and Obidos.

In the recent VT meeting I planned the visit of more than 20 VTers, and tried to forewarn things planning lunch brake in Nazaré and free time by the afternoon in Óbidos. I was betrayed by the bus contract, imposing the return early than expected, but I think that things were not too bad.

Anyway, if you're one of those who love details, you'd better plan an overnight trip, living the magic of Obidos by night.

Checking the Vter's reactions to the meeting and trip (nice, thanks) I noticed that someone (didn't get the name, but will check it again) complained about the rush, and the "terrible guide", always pushing forward. When I was preparing my excuses, I noticed that the guide was a... "she". Reading more carefully, I verified that the time mentioned in a monument was about an half of what we had. Of course, she wasn't part of our group, and came in a commercial trip, maybe before the meeting.

I think we did better than the pros!

Azulejos

by Imaniac

Azulejos are the famous Portuguese tiles. Most of the time they are blue and white. If you whatch closely you can see them at a lot of spots in Obidos. A particulary nice place to see them is the entrance gate. You can also buy an azulejos souvenir in one of the shops on the main street.

Traveling back a few hundred years on time

by MarioPortugal

The village of Óbidos is located inside the Castle walls. This really amazes me. People do actually still live in those houses. Visiting Óbidos is like going back a few hundred years in time !!!. Lovely.
