Experience the land where Kings and Queens have come to be married.
On this private tour, you will visit Obidos, a medieval town of Queens, witness of weddings and royal baptisms, was a wedding gift from King D. Dinis to D. Isabel. Occupied by successive different civilizations (as indeed the whole country) stands on the steep summit the majestic castle. Reminding those who visit it, other times when it was part of the defensive pentagon of the Portuguese kingdom, designed by the Templar Knights for the central area of Portugal. The narrow streets, the alleys, the whitewashed houses surround the village in a medieval atmosphere. The dynamic daily life with handicraft shops, taverns and local markets gives you a chance to immerse yourself in the local culture. One of the most typical drinks you can enjoy is the ginjinha, a liqueur made by infusing “ginja” berries, (served in chocolate glasses). Land of the great Portuguese painter Josefa De Óbidos, the village stands between walls. Our visit starts at the city gate, where we can see the 16th century pillory (symbol of the county’s judicial autonomy).
Historical natural beauty.
Nazare became famous worldwide by the giant waves surfed by Garret MacNamara. But what awaits us is a delicious lunch experience provided by fresh fish. Grilled on the grill or in “Nazarene stew” the options are many. For those who enjoy, the tasty seafood will not be missing. At the end of lunch, we walk a little along the waterfront where we can see the fish drying on the colorful “pancakes” (boards with net). We go up to the “site” of Nazaré where we enjoy the spectacular view of the beach, the fishing and recreational port. Between legends and reality we visit the chapel of Memory and the Shrine of Our Lady of Nazare (optional). We will have the opportunity to see Nazarene women in their typical costumes: the seven skirts.
