Torre de Maneys, Tower of Poets, Obidos

Holiday Rental House -
5 Bedrooms , 6 Bathrooms , Sleeps 11

Torre de Maneys is two buildings linked by an enclosed bridge across the street. The main house in stone, dating from the XVI century, is believed to have been a former storage tower of the Castle of Óbidos.

The Space

Most of the books are on the stacks on the...

This stay was truly the highlight of our trip. Beautiful old castle / home with so much history, and a much better value than the Pousada. They welcomed us to join them for celebrating processionals of Good Friday. My wife fell ill while staying there...More

About the neighbourhood
Óbidos is a unique place for spending a vacation. You can walk everywhere and get lost in the medieval streets, taking the time to observe the detailed architecture of its buildings, churches and squares. Every corner holds a potential surprise; the hilltop location, sloping topography, and surrounding castle walls, offer contrasting views of narrow streets against a backdrop of open territory beyond.
The many bookshops found inside the village (belonging to the Óbidos Literary Village Program) are a destination to explore for who is interested in discovering contemporary authors or old books long out of print.
