About the tour

Obidos Village is one of Igor's favorite locations in the west of Portugal, being lost in Obidos is being transported into time to the medieval period. Being considered one of the 7 Wonders of Portugal with narrow streets, old charming houses, and many monuments like the Church of Santa Maria de Obidos, the main door of the village with an amazing tile work from the XVII, the Castle, and a lot of breathtaking viewpoints that make this village a mandatory stop when you are in Portugal. Its village that comes from the Celtic people C. 308 a.C., was conquered by the Romans, and finally, Arabic people leaving until 1148 when this village was conquered by Christian troupes sent by our first king D. Afonso Henriques. It was part of the house of Queens until 1843 since King D.Dinis donated it as a wedding gift to Queen Saint Isabel as a sign of his love. It's a famous place nationally because of the medieval market once a year and the chocolate market that makes a chocolate lover be in haven. Don't think twice! join Igor!

Igor was absolutely fantastic! We happened to get this tour on a beautiful sunny day when the village was bustling with people out and about. It was so picturesque and Igor is a knowledgeable, friendly, and funny tour guide. Will definitely be back for another of his tours!

A great destination charming town. Very wordy commentary a bit superficial and repetitive with a bit too much personal chat and self promotion not as engaging as many more mature guides
