We slept well, woke early and went down to breakfast in the hotel’s dining room…..softly walking through vaulted passageways meant for silent prayer. Breakfast was fabulous…..the best we’ve ever had in Europe…..or back home, for that matter. Freshly baked breads & rolls, cereals, eggs, lunchmeats, cheeses, yogurts, fresh fruits (pineapple, papaya, mango, melon) and pastries for dessert (we had to try….and weren’t disappointed in….the Pasteis de Nata, egg custard tarts dusted with cinnamon).
Craig walked along the castle ramparts (not for me…..the crumbling old stairs leading up to the walkway were way too spooky)
As we meandered back through town, we stopped at two churchs along the way. The tiles lining the walls in the Church of St Mary of Obidos were stunning…..as was the gold leaf altar in the Church of St Peter.
Obidos is a small town so we were soon packed up and headed north to Nazare, a beach town on the western coast…….
