Visiting Gaeiras – Near Óbidos

Gaeiras is a dynamic village close to Óbidos, where I have… a dynamic friend.

​They try hard, with some success, to complement Óbidos activity.

Main square


The centre of the village has a very traditional look, with a band stand facing the entrance of Casa das Gaeiras, an old mansion with a big garden used in cultural events.


Fountain of Gaeiras

Some modest sources are a reference in the town. One of the ugliest ends up not clashing in the leafy park adapted for children.


Church of Gaeiras

Despite being replaced by a more modern temple, the church of Nossa Senhora da Ajuda, built in the 18th century, has been cared for and stands out in the village.

Old masters

Old mansion

Casa das Gaeiras, the dominant building of the farm with the same name, was built in the 18th century by a German operating a tannery factory. It was later bought by a doctor, who added the wine business.
It is now a space available to rent for big events.

A former cellar in the village is now the place to regular artistic events.

​Only four kilometers out of main town, it is a nice stop, so be attempt to the advertising to see what is on there during your visit.

Gaeiras is a small city belonging to Óbidos, and its main attraction, at short distance, is obviously… Óbidos .

​Either to eat, or to have a drink, or just to meet people, the magnetic power of the city makes it part of everybody’s life.



Wine production at Quinta das Gaeiras is today managed by Quinta do Gradil. Small local production was especially concentrated on white wines, for which the soil seems suited. It is possible to schedule a visit with wine tasting at any of the farms.
