Day trip Óbidos and the Buddha Eden Garden in Portugal

Day trip Óbidos and Buddha Eden Garden: discover past times and the Far East

Visiting the picturesque medieval town of Óbidos is a must when on holiday on Portugal's Silver Coast! The walled town with its narrow, cobbled streets, the charming white houses with or without bougainvillea, the Manueline-style porticos, the beautiful castle that is now a hotel, the atmospheric squares and the many churches will plunge you into a cosy and historic atmosphere during this special day tour.

Events in Óbidos

In Óbidos you will not only find romance and history, but also a rich cultural offer throughout the year. The pinnacle (for us) is the open-air medieval festival that takes place every year from mid-July to the beginning of August. Actors in full medieval dress provide entertainment in the streets and in the enclosed medieval village, for which you buy an entrance ticket. The actors provide a wide variety of entertainment. A spectacle that is definitely worth seeing. Book your transfer with Jinah Trans (also available separately from the day tour) so that you can enjoy this festival to the full!

Other events during the year include the Festival Internacional do Chocolate (chocolate festival), Temporada de Música Clássica Barroca (baroque music), the Temporada de Cravo (harpsichord) and the Festival de Ópera (opera festival).

Delicacies and more in Óbidos

If you like delicacies, Óbidos will undoubtedly have something to your liking. Be sure to try a Ginjinha de Óbidos, a cherry liqueur served in a chocolate cup. Delicious!
