Óbidos – Home for Queens On Atlantic Coast

Close enough to the capital and situated on a high point near the Atlantic coast, Óbidos had a strategic importance in the territory. Since the king D. Dinis offered it to his wife D. Isabel, in the century XIII, this small town belonged to the House of the Queens who, throughout the various dynasties, benefited and enriched it. Nobody is indifferent to Óbidos and the wines of the region.

You will get to see and feel:

Your glamorous day will start with the  to visit 2 off the beaten path wineries, on the Lisbon Wine region.  During the visits you will have the opportunity to know and taste wines that were popular in England in the era of Queen Elizabeth I and in the Victorian era, thanks to the presence in Portuguese territory of the English army, helping the Portuguese forces against Napoleon’s troops. Come and enjoy almost extinct wines;  wines unique in the world that thanks to the revitalization led by young winemakers, know today a new future.

Food in Portugal is a serious affair. You will feel why Portuguese cuisine is a mixture of Mediterranean traditions and Atlantic freshness. Enjoy your home made food at a Portuguese regional restaurant; all seasoned with the elegant wines from the Atlantic coast…

The adventure continues on the medieval walled city of Óbidos; a fairy tale historical walled village that was owned by the House of Queens, only abolished in 1834. Through here passed most of the queens of Portugal, leaving large benefits and urban requalifications.
More recently the village was the scene of the preparatory meeting for the April 25th Revolution, thus linked to a very important historical moment of contemporary history of Portugal.
With a wide historical, cultural and architectural heritage, Óbidos is one of the most beautiful towns in Portugal. Its charm and romanticism are present in its typical whitewashed houses with blue and yellow bars, in its narrow cobble stoned streets, in its castle walls and in its architectural heritage. Taste the local delicious pastries, drink a ginginha at a local bar and enjoy your stunning sunset over Óbidos…
