Fodor's Expert Review Casa das Senhoras Rainhas

Rua Padre Nunes Tavares 6, Óbidos, Leiria, 2510-070, Portugal

As its name suggests, the charming House of Queens just inside the city walls pays tribute to the royalty associated with Óbidos over the centuries. Most of the guest rooms have balconies, while the grand tower room (accessible via a short flight of steps) has the best views. The restaurant overlooks the garden and has outdoor seating for the warmer months, serving gourmet Portuguese cuisine. Try the bacalhau das rainhas (layered with onions, spinach and potatoes, au gratin with a herby cornbread topping) or the chambão de borrego (lamb shank, marinated and roasted).
