Obidos is a charming hill town, with attractive white washed houses dominated by the Castle. It was rebuilt in 1148 by Afonso Henriques after he took the town from the Moors.
Rua Direita, the main street, leads to Praca de Santa Maria where there is a Manueline pillory decorated with a fishing net.

This is the emblem of Dona Leonor, wife of King Joao II, who chose it to honour of the fishermen of Obidos who tried in vain to save her son from drowning.

The King of Portugal gave the town of Obidos to his wife on marriage as the traditional wedding gift.
