    Cave do Vale: Toupeiro

    There is not much to do at night in Obidos, but what we have is good.

    In a beautiful typical house, in the center of town but outside the walls, you descent to the basement, where a few small rooms allow you to sit and have a drink.

    Ginginha (with or without chocolate cup) is a common solution, but you may also order a Toupeiro (mole). This light and fresh drink is a secret of the house that helps to make the difference.

    Pick a calm night (hot or cold, it's the same, it's only a matter of coat or not).

    Take your time, and walk along the narrow streets of Obidos. You will find out that the beauty seen by day gets another expression with the discrete and balanced illumination.

    If in summer, crowds will pass by you with the noisy happiness of the good moments. In winter, the austere loneliness of the streets direct you to one of the many bars where a few unconditional lovers of Obidos enjoy the peace and tranquility of those selected moments.

    Don't do it often: you risk to become one of the unconditional...

    Real Taverna: For a light meal

    by solopes Updated Jan 7, 2014

    Obidos - Portugal

    A nice bar, in a very beautiful spot, under an arch. Inside, they try to match medieval decoration, not too well succeeded, but the ambiance is good.

    It has all the common typical drinks, and serves "tapas" where several kind of sausages and more may be chosen.

    Street activity

    by Savana66 Written Sep 17, 2004

    During those hot summer evenings you will find medieval music being played outside, and people go out on the street dancing or hanging out at little bars spread through the village.
    This last time I went there, there wasnt any of that because it was October, so its up to you to decide when to go.

    Ginjinha stand: Drink Ginjinha!

    by acemj Updated Mar 8, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There isn't much nightlife in Óbidos, except having a drink at one of the restaurants or bars. This photo shows a small ginjinha stand owned by a nice local couple. We stopped in to buy a couple bottles of the stuff and noticed that the couple also owns a small adjoining grocery store. At the stand, you walk up and ask for a drink and the man pours a shot of ginjinha from a big metal vat that tilts over into a pouring position. The spout is very narrow so that the drink pours in a small stream into your shot glass. Ginjinha is made from a fruit called ginja, that is similar to the cherry. It is usually served with a piece of ginja in the bottom of the shot glass.

    Dress Code: These guys in the photo were part of a motorcycling club that was passing through town. They were all riding Suzukis and it seemed an odd place to see a bunch of tough guys in leather biking outfits!

    Visiting the village of Óbidos during the night is always an enchantment. The lights illuminating the walls of the castle create a romantic scenario.
