Obidos has been voted one of the 7 Wonders of Portugal and it is very special to the Portuguese people. The Villa Natal transforms the village into a Winter Wonderland at Christmas. A Chocolate Festival is held annually, as is a Medieval Festival in the Summer months. There are numerous cultural activities, such as Fado concerts, piano concerts and exhibitions held in the local museum. Within an hours drive, you could dive off Belenga Island, canoe in Constancia, surf and windsurf on the local beaches, discover a local Wine Route, explore the mountains and national parks, or visit UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Alcabaca, Tomar, Batalha and Sintra. There are several large shopping centres in Lisbon which you could combine with a visit to Belem, a boat ride ride on the Tejo, a tram or bus trip around the historic centre. Historians can discover the history of the Peninsular Wars and the importance of the Duke of Wellington in nearby Terres Vedras and locality.
