Go Discover the Templars of Tomar tour


FavoriteLoadingAdd to planner! ❤ Go to trip planner!

The knights Templar have inspired many childhoods with fantasies of knighthood, white horses and brave men that rode the land, in armour, on tall horses to save the fair maidens from harm. History has exposed some of their darker secrets but the knightly legend remains strong and continues to titillate our fantasies. In Portugal the knights Templar had their headquarters in Tomar and their castle stands magnificently as world heritage overlooking the lovely town below.
Many people visit ‘Tomar’ every year throughout the entire year to visit it’s amazing Unesco world heritage building the Convent of Christ , it’s awe inspiring beauty and history, it’s mystical Templar knights past and it’s pure architectural magnificence have all contributed to it’s well deserved addition to Unesco list of world heritage.

The old city of Tomar is the medieval past away from the castle where the knights walked, socialized, bought their goods, conversed with the people, met their wives, baptised their children and buried their dead. Tomar managed to stay an important city even after the Templar’s diminished and the city has much to show and reveal about Portuguese history.
The city of Tomar was as much part of the castle as the castle was a part of the city and the misty , mossy atmosphere that surrounds it.
It is a city alive with history, tradition, gastronomy, wine and architecture. A beautiful and serene remembrance of the rich, cultural past of Portugal and it’s emergence into modern society!
