Favorite thing: The Manueline style castle CASTELO DE OBIDOS was a formidable medieval fortification. The castle, made out of local limestone and marble, was remodelled under King Dinis.
Besides its military function, it was also the Royal Palace.

In 1950, it became the first historic Pousada (State Inn) in Portugal.
