Trip to Tomar on the 15th November…….Book Now to secure your place
This trip has to be a must. It is one of the most interesting castles to visit in Portugal and well worth seeing.
The day will comprise of a full guided tour that takes you back to early medieval Portugal and the era of the mysterious Knights Templar. It starts at Almoural castle fortified as a stronghold in the middle 1100s but with a history much more ancient. Then we go on to the castle and the Convent of Christ and the medieval town of Tomar where Portugal gave refuge to the persecuted Templars and later reformatted the order as The Order of Christ, a prominent support in Portugal’s Age Discovery. These sites are some of the most intriguing and best representations of the influence of the Knights Templars in Portugal.
The trip includes: Boat ride to the castle crossing fee, Convent of Christ entrance fee. Transportation by coach picking up from Cascais and Lisbon.
