Walking the town walls of Medieval Obidos
Dating back to Roman times, Obidos has seen a lot of history and the thick walls that completely surround the town are testament to the battles and sieges that it must have endured during Roman and Moorish occupation. Nowadays things are pretty peaceful and one of the best ways to view the entire town is to walk along the walls. You can do the entire circumference or just a few sections, depending on how energetic you're feeling. Keep in mind that this is an ancient stone wall you're walking on, it's been through some rough times and high heel shoes are not advised. :)
