This tiny city about an hour north of Lisbon is rich with history and architecture. As you pass through ancient doors and an archway of "azuleijoes", you are among tiny, colorful homes and craggy cobblestone streets.
A castle wall, built by the Moors, is wonderfully in tact. Walking along the wall offers beautiful views of Óbidos and the surrounding, fragrant countryside.
While the city has a touristic element to it, you can enjoy local art, food and gininha (jhay-jhEEN-ya), a sour cherry liqueur.
