Since 2002 an annual Medieval Fair has been taking place in Óbidos. The event provides visitors a genuine "dive into to the past" (I'm quoting here the official program). :-)

It's a fun thin to see. Improvised medieval shops are all over and hundreds of volunteer actors show off their costumes. Visitors might need need to exchange Euros for old (medieval) coins to proceed with their purchases at the shops.

Click here to play my 13 seconds amateur video recorded in Óbidos on July 18, 2006. This video features Medieval folk music.

Medieval games and costume-dressed actors interact with visitors for fun. This Medieval Fair is definitely a great history lesson for any children & adult visiting.

Suggestion: check out my travelogue for more pictures of Óbidos' Medieval time.
