ÓBIDOS

" Óbidos has had a strategic importance in the territory. It had already been settled prior to the Romans' arrival in the Iberian Peninsula, and the town prospered after being chosen by the royal family. King Dinis offered it to his wife, Queen Isabel, in the 13th century, and it became part of Casa das Rainhas (Queens' Estate), who improved and enriched it throughout the various dynasties. This is one of the main reasons for the high concentration of churches in this small place.
You will find a well preserved castle within the walls, and a maze of streets and white houses that are a delight to stroll amongst. Along with the Manueline porticoes, the colourful window boxes and the small squares, many fine examples of religious and civil architecture from the town's golden days provide a host of reasons for making a visit. "

WINERY

" Casa Santos Lima is a family owned company dedicated to the production, bottling and selling of Portuguese wines. The company is present in the regions of Lisboa, Algarve, Alentejo, Vinho Verde and Douro. The company produces wines known for their excellent quality/price ratio and exports around 90% of its total production to more than 50 countries in all 5 continents. Casa Santos Lima is also the largest producer of "Vinho Regional Lisboa" and "DOC Alenquer" and in the past years has been one of the most awarded Portuguese wineries in major national and international wine competitions.

Casa Santos Lima was recognized as the "Best Portuguese Producer" by the prestigious international wine competition - "Mundus Vini 2021". This is not the first time that the company is selected in this category, since Casa Santos Lima also received this trophy by the "Berliner Wein Trophy 2020" competition.
This distinction highlights the excellent positioning and work done both internationally and nationally. "

MAFRA

" Built in the 18th century by order of King João V (1689-1750) in fulfilment of a vow he made, to be blessed with an heir from his marriage to Maria Ana of Austria, or be cured of a serious illness, the Royal Convent and Palace of Mafra is the most important baroque monument in Portugal. All in limestone and marble from this region (Pêro Pinheiro and Sintra), the building covers an area of almost four hectares (37.790 m2), including 1.200 rooms, more than 4.700 doors and windows, 156 stairways and 29 inner yards and courtyards. Such magnificence was only possible due to the Brazilian gold that poured into the country, allowing the King to carry out his patronage of the arts and the strengthening of royal authority. "
