“Reality check - it's the entry way into the town”

Reviewed 28 June 2018

The main picture on the profile is well lit; it is not this bright first thing in the morning. It is a beautiful arch and tiles, but you will pass through it in a minute.

Passing through this gate gives you a sense of stepping into the past. The combination of security for the walled village the gate would have provided with the artistry of the tiles dedicated to Mary gives a sense of how people lived and what was important to them at that time. A marvellous beginning to a great village.

As soon as you pass through this gate, you find yourself in the middle of a miracle.The city of Obidos with its narrow streets, little shops, colorful crockery and the monumental castle overlooking the entire area make you feel like the hero of a fairytale.

Most excellent waking tour with twin five year olds. Also stopped for a plate of meat and cheese from a little shop called Taberna O Lidador. All worth the drive from Lisbon. Very safe and the kids loved the castle.

The gorgeous blue Portuguese tiles adorn the entrance to Óbidos village & are dedicated to mother Mary, the patron saint of Óbidos. There was a musician playing underneath the tiles when we visited which sounded really good due to the acoustics within the gate walls.
