8 really lovely castle surrounded in a beautiful atmosphere...well, the fact that the atmosphere is so appropriate makes it beautiful...
Anyway, on the card you can see Óbidos, or more precisely, A Partial easterly view of the village at dawn (as the back of the card says)
The town of Óbidos is located on a hill and is still encircled by a fortified wall. The well-preserved mediaeval look of its streets, squares, walls and its massive castle have turned the picturesque village into a preferred tourist attraction in Portugal.
The name "Óbidos" probably derives from the Latin term 'oppidum' meaning "citadel", or "fortified city".
