Óbidos, Portugal

The Basics

The lovely white-washed town of Óbidos offers a mix of architectural styles. To see them, head to the vast defensive walls around the town for an overhead view. Then see the highlights with a tour: most itineraries cover the UNESCO-listed Batalha Monastery and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima, two of Portugal’s most revered pilgrimage sites. If you’d like to learn more about Óbidos’ history and culture, opt for a private walking tour.

Many day trips from Lisbon stop at Óbidos as well as the nearby fishing village of Nazaré, which is renowned for its gigantic waves. Some also include the city of Alcobaça, where you can see several other historic landmarks.

Debra was lovely. Would have liked to have more time at Nazare and Obidos. Lunch was great. Probably partly my fault as I did not look hard enough to find mad a more compatible tour.

Lisbon Super Saver: 2-Day Sintra, Cascais, Fatima, Nazare and Obidos Small-Group Day Trips
Got into the castle as Sintra before the masses of tourists- as we left, there were hundreds in line for entrance to the property and a long line for the castle tour. Not enough time in the village of Sintra- this tour could easily be only Sintra but drove out to the ocean and west of Lisbon to Cascias which was good for a gelato only- Obidos, Fatima were ok- a lot of driving. Saw Fatima 1 day before an anniversary so there were lots of pilgrims and tourists.

Full-day Fátima, Nazaré, and Óbidos Small-Group Tour from Lisbon
This tour was great. Our tour guide, Tania, was knowledgeable, engaging, and thoughtful with her explanations of the sites we toured. There was also time allotted for us to go out on our own and experience the sites as you wanted. The van was very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour.

Fátima, Nazaré, and Óbidos Small-Group Day Trip from Lisbon
Being at Fatima gave me goose bumps. To see the tree that Our Lady appeared in was incredible. Our guide, Albert Teves was great…informative, attentive and fun! Another high point for me was seeing the home of the 100 foot waves, Nazare! I highly recommend this experience! 🌺

When to Get There

During the months of July and August, Óbidos sees both soaring temperatures and an influx of tourists. Opt to visit in June or September, when the weather is more pleasant and European schools aren’t all on holiday.

Nazare

After visiting Óbidos, head to the nearby Nazare. The town is most famous as a big-wave surf spot, but it is also a charming spot to see Portugal’s old fishing traditions, including fishmongers wearing bright skirts and wooden boats bobbing in the harbor. Take a funicular up to the Sitio district for panoramic views of the coast, then head Praia do Norte beach, where you can watch the record-breaking waves and feast on freshly-caught seafood.
