Spring is here! And, despite the rain that loves us (seriously, it just doesn't stop), there are days when the sun comes and say 'hello'.

And it's so beautiful to see the flowers bloom, the colorful nature. And blue sky. And the shining sun.

And the sea... awww, the sea! It just gets more and more beautiful when its color blends into the horizon with the color of the sky.

So I jumped out of the house to breathe some fresh air and I felt in love with these little flowers, so beautiful and full of pink.

So, please...
Dear rain, I know your necessary but you really need to go. I need more days like this, with sun and blue sky.

The medieval village of Óbidos presents us with a unique charm. From its architecture, to the little shops, to the traditional taverns and (of course!), the famous 'ginginha'.

You'll find a well preserved castle within the walls, and a maze of streets full of colorful flowers and white houses that embraces us in a truly welcoming and wonderful environment.

About the (very) famous 'ginginha'... It's a sweet liquor infused with sour cherries and to be really tasty you need to drink it in an appropriate chocolate cup.

The village is beautiful to visit during all the year but, if you're lucky, you can find some (within many) event that gives even more joy to the village. The most popular are the International Chocolate Festival, the Medieval Market and the Opera Festival. It's important to emphasize that during Christmas, the town is filled with beautiful seasonal decorations which gives it a special shine.

The village of Óbidos is famous because of its castle and the fact that it's located between its walls, which allows us to enter into a historical (and medieval) world when we go inside.

When you hear about the history of that place, you are immediately transported to a movie scenario. The castle was a witness to fights for the throne, political changes and even Roman activities. It was home to broken hearted queens and a safe harbor for some kings.

This Castle was mentioned as one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal (in 2007), and it's classified as a Municipal Monument.
