Springtime is here and CHOCOLATE is in the air!  From 31 March to 25 April, the International Festival of Chocolate in Óbidos (Festival Internacional de Chocolate de Óbidos) returns for yet another month of chocolate, chocolate and MORE chocolate.  Kids and adults alike delight as this picturesque walled city is turned into a fantasy of cocoa and fudge.  Chocolate tastings, chocolate culinary delights, classes, and other activities make this festival a fun day for the whole family.



For 2016, the festival honors refreshing flavors that are inspired by the purity of the water. The entire region is symbolically turned into a world of chocolate, with Obidos Lagoon flowing with the dark rich goodness.

    The chocolate festival was so great! It was a little bit expensive to enter and you also have to pay if you want to eat something, but it was worth it, I never ate so much chocolate in one day! The sculptures were very beautiful, it’s crazy how they make it, they must have a lot of patience and spend so much time doing that!
