the famed Posada de Obidos - there are so few rooms you must book well in advance. The rooms are charming and elegant. The staff reserved yet friendly. The restaurant is charming and has an outdoor patio overlooking the city and walls. It is magical in the evening when the streets are hushed and the walls are lit. You feel...

Visiting with wife & 2 older children, exceptional hotel within the castle walls. Treated like royalty by EVERYONE here. Feels like you are in medieval times with all the modern luxury. Not an easy access be well worth the trip, one of our highlights of our Portugese trip.

This hotel is on the edge of a great walled town, and part of the hotel is inside the walls, and part is outside the walls. We stayed in the "new" part, (1950's), in a quaint room, up a tight flight of stairs, just comfortable enough. VERY helpful staff, and realized that we should have stayed in the OLD part...

Go in winter and sit by the fire and drink Port wine. Venture into Obidos and eat at any one of the great restaurants in the village and then rush back to your hotel and drink some more Port. Enjoy the breakfasts and have dinner in the Hotel at least once.

If you're looking for the fun of staying in a castle, this is your place! It's authentic, dark, moody, loaded with Medieval intrigue and history--which is what makes this castle experience so compelling. Located on the top of a hill, there are spectacular views of the town of Obidos and the surrounding farmland from every side of the castle. But...
