After Dom Afonso Henriques wrenched the village from the Moors, he offered Obidos as a wedding gift to his betrothed, his beloved Isabel. The village remained the personal property of the queens of Portugal until 1834. Today the town's ramparts, cobblestone streets, and 14th-century facades make Obidos the most romantic spot in Portugal.Taj Mahal
