51 Carriage outside Church of Santa Maria in Óbidos, Portugal

The streets of Óbidos, Portugal, are mostly cobblestone. It is best to see this medieval town by foot or, when you get tired, go for a horse-carriage ride. This driver is waiting outside the Church of Santa Maria. Igreja de Santa Maria is the site where the arranged marriage of King Afonso V to Princess Isabella of Coimbra was celebrated in 1441. What made this event significant is that they were cousins. He was ten years old and she was only eight.
