Full description
Head to the charming city of Tomar, home to some of Portugal’s most impressive monuments and buildings. Gain insight from your guide about how the Knights Templar used a religious code to form the city, like the four monuments stationed around the city to resemble a crucifix. In Tomar, see famed monuments such as the 12th-century Convent of Christ, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and visit the Castle of Tomar. 

Then, take a break for lunch at a local restaurant. While you are free to choose, the guide will recommend the best tavernas that serve excellent food and add to the experience. Afterward, venture to the Gothic-style Church of Santa Maria do Olival, a gorgeous 12th-century church erected for the Knights Templar. Finally, enjoy the relaxing landscape on your drive back to Lisbon.
