    Drive!

    by Savana66 Written Sep 17, 2004

    You can easily get to Obidos leaving Lisbon through A8 heading Leiria. You will see the signs letting you know what the right exist is, cant miss it.
    Personally I would prefer to take a secondary road and enjoy the drive, but you better have a map and be prepared to ask for directions.

    From Lisboa to Obidos...

    To go to Obidos you take a train from Lisboa-Rossio to Cacem and then another train from Cacem to Obidos. The single journey ticket costs around 6 Euros.

    When you leave the train in Obidos turn around and look up the hill, there is the castle. Cross the railways and there are some stairs that take you up the to the castle.

    Train Station Obidos

    The best way to explore Obidos is on foot. No other way would be possible, as cars are not allowed inside the walls. Bring comfortable shoes with you since the streets are cobbled and going up and down, apart from stairs and walking on the castle's walls.

    Obidos is about 80 km from Lisbon and it's easy to get there by car. There is a highway in Lisbon called A8 that takes you straight to the village, just follow the exit sign that says Obidos. You must pay a toll on highway - in February 2004 the toll was 5.30euros each way. Once you arrive to Obidos, you must park your car by the main entrance (Village Doors), as the cars are not allowed inside. You must pay to park your car, there is a park meter there - just insert the coins and leave the paper inside your car on a visible place.

    By car, departing from Lisbon, take the A8 highway and exit at the sign to Óbidos. From Oporto, take the A1 highway and go as far as Leiria, where you take route EN1 until Batalha (S. Jorge) where you follow the direction of Caldas da Rainha. Arriving at Tornada take the A8 (IC1) and exit to Óbidos.
    From Lisbon the distance is 73 Km, from Oporto it's 245 Km.

    Park outside the walls.

    The better way to know and to explore the beautiful narrow streets, to admire the whitewashed houses still encircled by its imposing walls nestled on top of a sloped hill, is on foot. I did it and I loved any minute I was there.

    In the castle and village, you have to walk. The roads are much too narrow for vehicles.

    But for going to Obidos, we got there in our tour bus.
