If stories such as Hansel and Gretel or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory excite you then you are surely going to wish you were in the medieval town of Óbidos, Portugal right now.

As we speak, they are hosting the 2015 International Festival of Chocolate, which has been running from the 16 April and will end on 3 May.

This year’s event is the 13th edition where chocolatiers from all over the world come to sample and purchase various chocolate products such as sweets and cakes.

Attracting more than 200 000 visitors each year, this is definitely one of Óbidos’ biggest annual events.
