This tour takes you to the heart of Obidos region and with a history linked to wine and sparkling wine production dating back to the XV Century, the Quinta dos Loridos estate is a unique place, where tranquillity and nature play a special role.

It is from these vineyards that the grapes are picked for the production of top quality sparkling wines - those of the Loridos brand . Produced in the age old winery, a rod-press dating from the XVII Century can still be found here. The Classic Method ("Methode Champenoise") is used to produce the wine, the whole process of which is conducted manually. This is followed by a period of ageing in the cellar.

The surroundings of the cellar perfectly complement its purpose: terraced gardens, a lake, a forest, vineyards, and the largest oriental gardens in Europe, the impressive Buddha Eden.

Buddha Eden Garden:

With circa 35 hectares, the garden was created and devised by the Comendador Jose Berardo, in response to the destruction of the Buddhas of Banyan, in which one of the greatest acts of cultural barbarity took place, erasing masterpieces of late-period Gandhara art.

From Buddhas , pagodas, terracotta statues and the various carefully-placed sculptures which can be found among the gardens, it is estimated that some six thousand tons of marble and granite were used to create this monumental work of art.

There are seven hundred hand-painted terracotta soldiers, each of them unique, copies of those which were buried, some of them 2,200 years ago. At the central lake, KOI (Japanese carp) fish can be seen, and sculpted dragons rise out of the water. The central staircase is the focal point of the garden, where the golden Buddhas offer you a calm welcome.

This is the Quinta dos Loridos estate, a place which awakens the senses...

We went this morning as a family group and were enchanted by the gardens and the hundreds of statues and sculptures. it was surprisingly quiet which was great and the €3 each entrance fee was a bargain. Nice selection of wines in the shop as well.

What an amazing place. From the begging to the end of the tour one is amazed with the beauty of the statues and the nature. Its a family park as well as a romantic get away to enjoy art, peace and nature. If you are on your way to Obidos or on your way back, don't forget to stop here.

I saw a few pictures before we went but as we went there I didn't realise the amount of space there was. If you don't like walking there is a train that goes round and you can hop on and off. But we were there 3 hours and didn't see everything. I also had a pram which is really accessible.... More

I was completely blown away by the whole Buddha Eden experience. The garden is absolutely huge and you can see that there was a lot of work put into this attraction. They give you a map that's easy to navigate and then you can go through all the numbers. There's countless of photo opportunities walking thru the garden. Easily can... More
