Obidos Village Reviews
19世紀まで代々ポルトガル王妃の直轄地となり栄えたそうです。かつて訪れたデニス王がこの村に深く魅せられ、イザベル王妃にこの村をプレゼントしたことが始まりです。別名「王妃の村」とも呼ばれ、大切に守られてきたそうです。教会まで続くメインのディレイタ通りには、小さなお土産屋やお菓子屋、レストランが立ち並び、観光客で賑わっていました。アズレージョを購入しました。 more »It seems to have prospered from generation to generation under the direct control of the Queen of Portugal until the 19th century. King Dennis, who once visited, was deeply fascinated by the village and presented the village to Queen Isabel. Also known as the "Queen's Village", it seems to have been carefully protected.

You can park the car for free behind the castle (but it is good to arrive early because there are few vacancies) or at the beginning of the city, paid per hour, near the aqueduct. The main street of Vila de Óbidos is Rua da Direita with many shops and bars and ideal for a beautiful walk. The end of the street is Óbidos Castle with an associated hotel and a bookstore. It's worth a stop to take the famous Ginja de Óbidos in the chocolate cup. It has a nearby Pingo Doce market for those who are by car and worth a stop for those looking for a cheaper lunch. After visiting the village and The Castle of Óbidos, we returned to Fatima with a stop to visit the castles of Porto de Mós, Leiria and Ourém before.
