In picture-perfect Obidos you will find the finest example of a Portuguese medieval walled town. Perched up on a hill just outside Lisbon, the town was founded by Celts in 308 A.C., and later conquered by Romans. D. Afonso Henriques, first King of Portugal, claimed the town in 1148.
Here Bradley takes guests on a walking tour, explaining in the history and treating you to insight and stories among the pretty streets. “You can walk the walls in their entirety to do a whole loop of the city,” Bradley explains. “It’s full of whitewashed houses, narrow medieval streets and laneways. And, with the sun reflecting on the multicolored door frames and flower boxes, it is incredibly picturesque.”
