Walking around in….Óbidos

 

It appears that I can’t leave my own country. The last 3 posts on this category have been about Portugal. But it really is a pleasure to show you places that you might have not seen yet.

This time I give you….Óbidos.

The name comes from the Latin oppidum, which means something like a fortified city. And that’s exactly what it is. We have the city inside the walls of the castle.

The town in itself is quite small but full of spirit. We can walk around peaceful in the streets, without any cars. The town now hosts several festivities, such as the Chocolate feast, the medieval market and the Christmas market, which actually fill the town up till the breaking point.
