Obidos, Portugal - street scene

 

Obidos is a small, medieval, walled city, traditionally the property of the Queen of Portugal and now a Unesco heritage site.  Now almost overwhelmed by tourists, so if you want to visit, pick an out of season time and stay at the pousada, which is the castle.  Almost car free, except on the fringes, with more restaurants than you'd ever need.

This sounds like a good recipe for a memorable visit Tom
You've given a very mice treatment to your beautiful picture Tom!
For someone who has seen only a little of Portugal Tom, I would say that this is the sort of thing that looks typical of that country.
You've done a great job on the photo.
What a lovely street, you found a good viewpoint Tom.
it's a great point of view Tom... we have visited similar cities perched on mountain tops on Le Provence in the south of France...
your treatment brought out the light very well....petersmile
