Mercado Medieval (Óbidos Medieval Fair)

Visitor's Guide

Mercado medieval, Óbidos

The annual medieval fair takes place around the castle

A medieval fair recreates the Middle Ages in Óbidos for about one month every July. Knights and fortune tellers stand around the large terrace behind the castle, and there are theater performances and concerts of medieval music on a big stage.

Visitors are taken on a journey back in time to medieval Europe in different ways, including in the food served at several stalls. There are also campsites, displays of weapons and tools, and live animals such as ponies, donkeys, falcons, and snakes.
To access the site with all of the events and activities, you must purchase a ticket at the entrance.

In 2024, the fair takes place from the 18th to the 28th of July.
