Obidos is a town located in the historical province of Estremadura. Obidos was originally a fortified Roman settlement, becoming a military stronghold under the Arabs, reconquested by the Christians in 1148. The Castle and city walls were repeatedly repaired and expanded over the years.
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. The castle is located at the highest point. Today it is a "Pousada".
