|This delightful, small hotel
is located in the old area of Obidos which is one the few walled towns
still remaining in Europe.
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.
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.
Records show that the tradition of this gift started when King Dinis married Isabel of Aragon in 1282.
Casa das Senhoras Rainhas has nine charming rooms, each with a balcony or terrace.
The rooms are light and comfortable
and they all have a private bathroom and modern amenities.
The bedrooms are tastefully decorated and all have air conditioning, direct dial telephone, cable television and a safe. Non smoking rooms are also available.
There is a restaurant and
an "Honesty Bar" where you can serve yourself drinks.
Golfers will enjoy the nearby 18 hole Praia Del Rey Golf Course, which offers interesting views of the Portuguese landscape.
When the town and castle were first built, the salt water of Obidos Lagoon came up to the walls of the town. Over the years the land has risen and the lagoon is now fertile agricultural land.
Obidos is approximatley 80 kilometres north of Lisbon and is connected by motorway.
When at Casa das Senhoras Rainhas it is necessary to park the car outside the main gate of the town and walk to the hotel.
At reception, a pass can be obtained to allow access, by car into the old town.
