The town of Obidos is known as the ‘wedding present town’ as it was given by King Dinis to his bride, D. Isabel, on their wedding day in 1282. Since then, Obidos has been a place of refuge and relaxation for the Portuguese monarchy. Obidos
is an excellent example of medieval architecture - its beautiful squares, narrow streets, walled fortress and castle are a popular tourist destination.
This luxury Hotel in Obidos is housed within the town’s 12th century medieval castle, which is considered one of the 7 marvels of Portugal and is awaiting classification of ‘World Heritage’ by UNESCO.
The Pousada of Obidos has 14 double rooms and 3 suites, 9 of which are located in the castle and 8 in a new wing. All rooms are named after Portugal’s Kings and Queens who have stayed in the town. They have en-suite bathroom, heating/air conditioning, safe, minibar, bathrobes, hairdryer, telephone, Cable TV and internet access.
There are some good restaurants in Obidos but we recommend eating in the Pousada’s own restaurant which offers excellent regional and international cuisine.
