Make Way

The very narrow cobblestone streets ofObidos, Portugal are shared by tourists, and the cars of the local residents. Obidos is a walled, medieval village with approximately 3100 residents. It is known as the "Wedding Present Town" because it was a gift King Dinis gave to Queen Isabel on their wedding day in 1282, but that alone is not what makes it such an extraordinarily romantic place -- what make it one of Europe's most romantic medieval villages are its incredibly picturesque cobblestone streets lined with colorful houses filled with geraniums and bougainvillea, Gothic doorways and windows, whitewashed churches, flowerpots and dazzling tiles -- all encircled by the walls of a 12th century castle. The medieval, stone wall surrounding the town is 13m (45ft)-high.
