Hey there!

A visit to Óbidos, Portugal is a perfect short day trip from Lisbon and an even shorter distance from our home in the countryside. Óbidos is always on our list of recommendations for friends who visit the area, and they are always happy they visited.

A medieval village within castle walls, Óbidos is a great place to visit for the day. It’s rich in history, beautiful, and peaceful. Plus, it is currently known as the City of Literature for all its bookstores and book events. We’re lucky to live so close, and so we get to experience this lovely spot often.

If you are interested, we can do a more detailed post on Óbidos, so you can be better acquainted with it, and maybe plan for your own visit.

For now, enjoy our joyful moment from our most recent visit.

We share of love of Lisbon, Chihuahuas, sushi, coffee, binge-worthy tv, movies, being out in nature, the ocean, and our amazing mom.

And of course, we love literature and appreciate a kick-ass lipstick.

We're Isabel and Marilyn, the two sisters behind Letters and Lipstick.
