Co-ordinates: Longitude 39.356073, Latitude -9.156691

Overview: Our wild camp at Obidos put us in a wide open car park beside the famous aqueduct. It has pros and cons which just about even out. The cons are a lack of shade or privacy, being next to a main road and, if you’re dog owners like us, there’s also the need to keep you faithfuls on leads at all times.

On the plus side you are well placed for the scenic old town of Obidos and there are plenty of places to top up the water tank, enjoy some history, withdraw cash and procure food.
