Óbidos typical house - Portugal

This is another card that i already had, but once again, the other card is unwritten. No problem then. The card is from Óbidos, a medieval walled town, lying 80 km north of Lisbon. It was sent by Zé "pilotOne".

Within Óbidos' extensive walls the streets are narrow and houses are painted white with blue or yellow trim, flower boxes and old lamp lights. It has been well preserved, tv antennas and telephone wires are all underground to maintain the medieval atmosphere.
