In the thirteenth century, when the portuguese King Dinis married Isabel of Aragon, he offered her as a real treat, the town of Obidos, which in the past was administered only by women.
The area of the town of Óbidos is located on a hilltop, encircled by a fortified wall. Óbidos remains a well-preserved example of medieval architecture; its streets, squares, walls and its castle are a popular tourist destination.
