The Templars tower of Dornes, Portugal


FavoriteLoadingAdd to planner! ❤ Go to trip planner!

The Templars tower of Dornes is a beautiful piece of Portuguese Templar heritage in a very charming old village, Dornes, which stands on a peninsula in the Zezere river.

The tower of Dornes build on 72bc Roman remains is a pentagonal tower build in ashlar stone .

The Templar tower of Dornes is most noticable by its unusual shape, its five
faces make it a rare example of military architecture of the time of the
Reconquista .

It was build by the Templars to defend the Tagus line, although its fundament dates much further back and was possibly a strong hold in the search for gold in the Zezere river in Roman times.

From the tower and the square around it you have the most amazing view of the surrounding landscape and the serene blue river.

Inside
the tower is intact,
The tower is generally closed, currently we are investigating the possibility for public viewing.
