  • Knights Templar Day Tour from Lisbon

    1. Knights Templar Day Tour from Lisbon

    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. Please note, this tour ...

    Carlos was a great, informative guide…full of history and with some humor. Timely pickup and drop off.

This trip was truly fantastic. By far, one of the best tours we have ever taken. Ricardo was extremely knowledgable and passionate about Tomar, the Knights Templar, the Knights of Christ and the unbelievable sites we visited. He brought the past to life as if we were truly there. Even lunch was fabulous with a medieval flair. We were picked up exactly on time and the day was flawless. We were so impressed that we booked another trip with him on the spot. This is far more than just a 5 star experience.

Super interesting tour to the Templars in the Tomar Monastery with an impressive chapel in the fortified church and an incredible 7 cloisters 8 approx. 1.5 hours. Very interesting remarks by the guide Joao on the scientific achievements of the Templars in the field of navigation.
