Medieval town of Obidos: Obidos, Portugal

The town of Obidos dates from the 13th century and for many years was the property of the Queens of Portugal. It’s a dizzy array of cobblestone lanes and paths.  Here we enjoy whitewashed baroque churches, Azulejo tiled houses, and astounding hilltop view to the Atlantic sea.  From the time of the Moors, there are remnants of rampart walls - with a double offset entry into the city.
