Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I were on a Gate1 tour and we were on our own in Obidos.
We saw quite a few churches, Church of Saint Mary (Igreja de Santa Maria) and São Pedro Church & Chapel of Saint Martin. We spent some time at Sao Pedro Church (Church of St. Peter). To us, this was the best one to visit.
We were disappointed in the others.

The inside of this church is quite beautiful. You can walk in for free and it just takes a few minutes.

It is one of those small churches in Obidos. It is very beautiful, simple and quiet. It is absolutely peaceful. You may also try to lit some candles like I did.

The facade of the church is not particularly impressive, but the empty Town Square in front of the church helps draw attention to it. The first thing one notices upon entry to the church are the azulejos tiles that completely cover both sides of the church. The altar is quite nice too.

This azuleo lined church of Saint Mary was originally a Visigoth Temple in the 8th century. Located right off the square on Rua Direita.

Magnificent architecture, beautiful statuary and paintings, and gorgeous blue-and-white tiled walls. One of the prettiest churches we saw on our trip.

Likewise many other Churches on the Iberian peninsula, this one was also built over the Mosque when the Moors were defeated in 12c and rebuilt later in middle ages.
Santa Maria occupies the main village square and can be seen from the Castle ramparts, so you cannot miss it. Beautiful Azulejos tile work inside along with a terrific altar and painted ceiling.

The exterior doesn't look that grand but when you go inside the walls are extensively tiled in the traditional blue and white tiles of Portugal.

We did stop and take photos as this old church is posed to great advantage in an open town square. Sadly it was not open so we could not go inside to see the reported lovely tile work.

Although the main church in the town plaza, it is quite small inside, but absolutely beautiful. Lavishly decorated ceiling with additional paintings at ceiling level along one side and a similarly beautifully painted altar. The lower parts of all walls have extensive blue tiling familiar to this region, quite stunning. Excellent small church.
