We’re back in Lisbon now, the car relinquished and walking up hill and down in the Bairro Alto neighborhood but I can’t let Obidos go quite yet. I have to mention….
Obidos is known as “The City of Literature” and it merits the title. This town of barely 2,000 inhabitants boasts at least four bookstores, big ones. There’s even a hotel, The Literary Man, that is built as a library, with books from floor to ceiling that guests are free to borrow. I found six Georgette Heyer novels on a hallway shelf!
