Tomar and Almourol Castle Day Trip

In the morning, we'll meet at the agreed point to start our Tomar day trip. After approximately 1 hour 30 minutes travelling through the landscapes of central Portugal, we'll arrive at our first destination, Almourol Castle

We'll approach the 12th century fortress, on the small island located in the Tejo River, by boat and go into the castle to admire its 10 imposing towers. As we walk around the castle, we'll learn about its history. Did you know that it is one of the most important military monuments of the Iberian Reconquista?

Following on, you'll have free time to taste the traditional Portuguese cuisine at one of the medieval style restaurants in the area (lunch not included). 

Afterwards, the bus will take us to Tomar, Templar city. We'll visit the historical centre full of medieval monuments relating to the Order of the Poor Knights of Temple, and learn more about King Alfonso I and the Templars.

Accompanied by our guide, we'll visit Tomar Castle and the Convent of Christ, a sanctuary belonging to the Templars that was built in the image of the rotunda within the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. We'll also go to the Church of Santa Maria del Olivar, a 12th century Gothic temple built by and for the Knights Templar. 

The tour will end returning to Lisbon.
