18 JULY 2019

Roll up, roll up! It’s almost time for the medieval festival to begin!

It’s that time of year again, where within the castle walls, Óbidos makes an amazing transformation into a medieval town for three weeks, complete with medieval food, entertainment and even jousting!

The ‘Medieval Market’ is open from Thursday to Sunday from 18 July to 4 August. This is the 18th year of operation, and each year it just gets better and better.

If you really want to take your participation to the next level, you can hire very good quality costumes at the entrance and not just soak up the atmosphere, but be part of it!

It’s great to come towards the end of the afternoon, in time to watch the sun go down over the castle walls (bring something warmer to wear for the evening), and then after enjoying some of the entertainment and stalls, why not stay for dinner, sitting outside and enjoying medieval food from one of the popular tabernas set up especially for the festival.

It’s a great event for the whole family to enjoy. Don’t miss out!
