Last week I mentioned I just returned from an 18-day European Cruise with YMT. I visited some new places, but only one made it to my list of favorite European cities – Óbidos, Portugal!
If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you might have noticed I posted quite a few pics from my visit to Óbidos, and that’s because it’s so quaint and picturesque. For such a small town, it has truly unique architecture and welcoming facades. I felt like I stopped every 5 steps in order to capture something beautiful I saw in Óbidos. Today, let’s just wander around and enjoy the timeless beauty of Óbidos.
I had already visited Lisbon, Porto, Sintra, and Lagos on my previous trip, so I didn’t have any expectations when I heard my tour was visiting Óbidos. I only knew it was in Portugal, which is a country I really loved visiting due to its colorful buildings. Most of all, I was in awe of all the beautiful tiles covering walls and facades of buildings. It wasn’t difficult to see why Portugal is known for its tilework!
On this trip, however, here was my first glimpse of Óbidos. I immediately knew this city was going to be truly special.
