Walled Village of Obidos with a Festive Lunch - Lisbon - 2018 ( 7 Hours )
Lisbon, Portugal | 09 May 2018

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

Portugal’s capital is nestled on the right bank of the Tagus River, just seven miles inland from the Atlantic’s swells. Like the ancient city of Rome, this metropolis is ideally set on seven arching hills. Modern Lisbon is an intriguing cacophony of architectural styles, from medieval Moorish palaces to Renaissance monasteries to 20th-century Art Nouveau apartments.

We will depart by deluxe air-conditioned motor-coach and drive west, entering a rural region and leaving the urban society behind. Our first stop is at the walled village of Óbidos, which is considered by many as a true museum. This village, one of the best well-preserved medieval towns of Portugal, was the wedding gift of our kings to their queens. Its clean narrow streets and carefully whitewashed houses decorated with flowerbeds show the female touch left by our queens. After a walking tour accompanied by our guide, you can take the opportunity to enjoy the local traditional drink “Ginginha” in one of the many cafes and bars. This is cherry liquor tasted in a small cup of chocolate (one of the particularities of this traditional local drink).

After the visit of this unique medieval village, it will be time to enjoy a wine tasting followed by a delicious lunch at the exclusive Quinta de Santana Wine Estate.

Quinta de Santana is located in the village of Gradil, a region that has supplied Lisbon for centuries with fresh fruit and vegetables, wine, dairy products and meat. This historical property dates back to the 17th century.

After lunch, we’ll drive back to Lisbon and visit the neighborhood of Belém, which is linked to the Portuguese glorious period of the Maritime Discoveries. Part of the wealth from the maritime expeditions was used to build magnificent monuments in a unique Portuguese style. The extravagant Manueline architectural style is best typified in the Jerónimos Monastery and the Tower of Belém, both classified as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. If time allows, we will also drive through the city center, passing by the main historical squares and avenues, before returning back to the ship.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Resort casual with comfortable walking shoes. Moderate walking with cobblestone streets and uneven surfaces.
