Óbidos Medieval Market: Food, Music and lots of Animation
The Óbidos Medieval Market is an event of historical recreation that turns the village of Óbidos into a village of the Middle Ages.
For 16 days, fools, fire-eaters, dancers, musicians and youngsters invade the village, transporting the visitor to another dimension.
The Óbidos Medieval Market takes place during the summer in the months of July and August and is an event held for the whole family, from the smallest to the largest.
During the period of this medieval event, the town of Óbidos is transformed, completely adopting the identity of those same old times.
Óbidos Medieval Market: Rent your Fantasy
It is normal to see people masked strictly with costumes as tall as Templar knights, monks, princesses or queens, just by renting them at various points in the village.
After entering the enclosure you will see tournaments on horseback where the knights play for the victory and for the pleasures of the young nobles who attend the same.
But it is not just that, the venue is invaded by a frenzy of music with the musicians and the youngsters cheering up the hosts, but also fire-eaters, fools and dancers that transport us to times past.
Between the various intervals, you can look for the best place to give warmth to your belly and throat, because inside the enclosure there are several choices that allow you to enjoy the local gastronomy, craft beer or of course the mead.
