Full description
With a local guide, you will visit the village main gate where you will learn more about the village foundation, as well as the Romans and Moors occupation. Your next point of call will be Rua Direita, tha main street of Obidos to Saint Peter church where Josefa de Óbidos is buried. Josefa was one of the most important Baroque painters in Portugal.

After the Saint Peter church, you will head to the Saint Mary's church to see Josefa de Óbidos paintings (inside the church) and the incredible tomb of João Noronhas. After this church visit, you will venture to explore a secret Jewish neighborhood and discover some hidden gardens that are outside of the main touristic routes.

Before the completion of your tour, you will have the opportunity to climb up the old castle walls. Here you will be provided with an amazing view of the village, and it makes for a wonderful photo opportunity. This unique experience at Obidos ends with a tasting of the local and traditional rich sour cherry liqueur "Ginjinha", served in a cup of chocolate.
