Full description
Spend a day in the Portuguese villages of Constância and Tomar to discover the history of the Knights Templar. Your journey will begin in Lisbon.

Tomar was the Templar capital of Portugal and Spain and one of the most important in the medieval world. The main monument of the city is the Tomar Convent which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

A short distance from Tomar is the Almourol Castle. This emblematic monument was at one time controlled by the Knights Templar. The Almourol Castle and the city of Tomar are perfect examples to understand the mystique of the Templars, men that were simultaneously Warrior Knights and monks that lived under a rigid military discipline, but at the same time with a great rigor in the spiritual life.

At the end of the tour you will be dropped off at one of two locations in central Lisbon, either Restauradores or Marquês de Pombal.
