Obidos is precious, a typical village where tourism dominates, but where we easily forget the touristy "machine" so discreet as efficient.

In most of our old towns in Portugal, development was made against history, leading to the loss of many cultural references to the past. In some places, the process has been stopped and reversed, with several initiatives of preservation and reconstruction. Obidos is an exception. The development of town took always place respecting history and tradition, and that is easy to feel in the absolute harmony of the whole. There are not outstanding details, but each street, each building, each corner, is authentic, and harmonious.
For details see the good oficial page: http://en.cm-obidos.pt/#

The main entrance to the town is both a door and a chapel, dedicated to Our Lady of Mercy, the patron saint of Obidos, with tiles from the XVIII century with religious motifs.
