Óbidos is a Medieval walled town where time has passed it by. Within the extensive walls there are narrow cobbled streets, houses painted white with blue or yellow trim, flower boxes and old lamp lights. It has been well preserved, TV antennas and telephone wires are all underground to maintain the Medieval atmosphere. There are many churches and chapels among the houses. Several had to be restored after the earthquake of 1755. The Parish Church of Santa Maria is notable and pays homage to the famous local artist - Josefa d”Óbidos.
