"Architecture" Top 5 Page for this destination Óbidos Favorite Tip by micas_pt

Óbidos General: 46 reviews and 75 photos


Favorite thing: Obidos is a lovely medieval village. Everything seems to be in perfect order. I’ve been told that it isn’t allowed to build new houses inside the walls and that refurbishment has to keep certain patterns. The houses are lovely, as they are small, painted white with yellow or blue stripes. And most of them have flower vases hanging on the windows, making the streets a joyful place on spring and summer sunny days. Churches are also very pretty, most of them with beautiful azulejos (tiles), paintings and frescoes. Baroque style architecture or in other forms of arts such as azulejos (hand painted tiles) is easy to find in Obidos.
