Day 3 Christmas Eve - Óbidos

Today you'll visit the hilltop town of Óbidos, considered one of the most picturesque in Portugal.

Once a sleepy fishing village, this stylish seaside resort boasts fine beaches and a charming Old Town. The main street, Rua Direita, is the place to shop for local handicrafts, and the Paula Rego Museum showcases works by this renowned Portuguese artist. Your day concludes with a visit to the dramatic surroundings of Cabo da Roca lighthouse (weather dependent), the most westerly point of continental Europe. (B, D)
