Portugal plays host to the international chocolate festival!


 International Chocolate Festival, Obidos

4th – 14th March 2010

The small, historic town of Obidos will come alive in March as it plays host to an international chocolate festival.

Visitors from far and wide will descend on the medieval town to taste numerous varieties of chocolate, witness chocolate sculptures and enjoy magnificent chocolate window displays.

Over eleven days, Obidos will host a programme of chocolate-themed activities, which include competitions like the ‘Chocolatier of the year’ and the best chocolate recipe. Adults will be able to attend culinary classes, while children can take delight in the ‘Children’s Chocolate House’, which offers activities and the chance to prepare recipes.

With the event’s close proximity to Easter, the International Chocolate Festival falls at the perfect time of year when chocolate is most celebrated.

Obidos is situated just north of Lisbon, and is a prominent tourist attraction for visitors to the Lisbon region. Most celebrated for its medieval character, Obidos attracts visitors by its castle, quaint narrow streets and Baroque architecture.    

This time of year (March) is also pleasant for visiting Portugal – the weather is not too hot, but is still enjoyable, and one will be sure to miss all the crowds.
