Day 5: Medieval Óbidos

We hopped in a car for a 40 minute ride to historic Óbidos. The town is a major castle with narrow streets of cobblestone and small homes, restaurants mixed among tourist shopping, ringed by a giant castle wall.

We took it all in, had some tapas y bebidas, and enjoyed a day off from hiking. They even have an intact aquaduct:

Highly recommend a day here. Tomorrow we’ll take a walk down the hill and ride a train to Porto. After a two day visit in Porto, we resume our Caminho via the Senda Litoral, the beach Way north.
