Fodor's Expert Review Castelo de Óbidos

Óbidos Castle/Palace/Chateau Fodor's Choice

The outer walls of the fine medieval castle enclose the entire town, and it's great fun to walk their circumference, viewing the town and countryside from their heights. Extensively restored after suffering severe damage in the 1755 earthquake, the multitower complex has both Arabic and Manueline elements. Since 1952 most of the keep has been a pousada.
