ÓBIDOS
BICYCLE RIDE OR WALKS THROUGH THE VÁRZEA DA RAINHA ECO-LANE
This ecological lane connects the village of Óbidos with the Albufeira lagoon, stretching about 8km along the Arnóia river. Check the tourist office for information on the bicycle renting services.
BOAT TRIP TO THE RESERVA NATURAL DAS BERLENGAS (BERLENGA NATURE RESERVE)
About 30 km from Óbidos, this Reserve is situated on small Atlantic islands. This is an important place, in which several seabird species lay their eggs. No more than 350 visitors are allowed per day on the main island. So you’ll have to plan this in advance. You can walk through the specialised marked lanes on the island. From May to September. Starting from Peniche.
VISIT TO THE JESUS DA PEDRA SANCTUARY
Found outside the walls, in the plain below the Óbidos valley, this is an unfinished temple. It has an axial, cylindrical structure with adjacent, almost rectangular side towers, and it is covered with a hexagonal pyramid roof. These centralised floor plans and curved walls are very, very rare forms of construction in Portugal.
