Pousada do Castelo

About one hour's drive from Lisbon is Obidos, a well-preserved, walled medieval town built in 1282 and known for its cobblestone streets and white-washed, blue-trimmed houses. The town's 11th-century castle was converted into Pousada do Castelo in the 1950's, the first of its kind. From the ramparts and towers enjoy the stunning views of the town and countryside, with its windmills and vineyards. The rooms maintain their medieval atmosphere, with stone or whitewashed walls, four poster beds, azulejo-tiled bathrooms, and arrow-slit windows. The restaurant serves Portuguese cuisine such as roasted duck in honey and thyme-infused veal cutlets.
