What to expect

The narrow streets of the tiny village, paved with paving stones, will greet us with the aroma of freshly baked bread and traditional cherry liqueur. The gray walls of the fortress will tell the story of betrayal and battles they had to see.

The most magical village of Obidos and the castle of the same name is a place where the swords of knights still ring once a year, the rustle of medieval dresses is heard, and meat is cooked on a spit. And sometimes chocolate flows like in a real fairy tale. This is because this atmospheric city annually becomes the platform for thematic festivals.

We invite you to an individual tour, which will be conducted by a licensed guide Stanislav Menshov. The tour will start at your hotel door, from where Stas will take you in a comfortable 6-seat air-conditioned car north of the capital of Portugal, where about 100 km is a medieval castle surrounded by a pretty village. Then, you will walk along the picturesque streets, have breakfast with hot bread from the oven, climb the fortress wall and learn the history of this city, which is unique in its beauty.

Then you will go a little further north to a place worldwide known for giant waves that attract the best and most courageous surfers. Nazare is a fishing village where women still walk in 7 skirts, fishermen paint boats, and the freshest ocean fish is cooked in restaurants. Have you already guessed where Stas will offer you to dine? Sure, on the Atlantic coast with a breathtaking view of the ocean. You will take the funicular up to the rocky shore and admire the coast that stretches for tens of kilometers and is colored by the rays of the sunset.

All this, of course, is accompanied by fascinating stories from the life of Portuguese sailors, fishermen, knights, kings, and our contemporaries. In addition, Stas will share his observations about the Portuguese, their customs, and oddities incomprehensible to foreigners.
