The Church of St. John the Baptist, located next to Porta da Vila (the town main gate), is one of the most symbolic buildings and an essential reference of the built heritage of Óbidos.
The Óbidos Parish Museum aims to be a meeting and dialogue point between the community and its roots, as well as a factor of cultural growth, closely articulating with the remaining Museum services in the town of Óbidos. It is also an objective to encourage the study and dissemination of the Church’s artistic and historical assets, which for all intents and purposes is the basis of the local culture, manifesting it to different audiences: Schoolchildren, researchers and visitors, among others.
Opening Hours: Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 1pm – 2pm to 5pm
Closed on Monday
