Full description
You will be met at your hotel to begin your day trip. Head north to visit the largest tourist caves in Portugal.

Then turn East to head for your next point - discover Tomar, a 12th-century Templar town featuring a castle and the Convent of Christ – the latter was selected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and served as the Portuguese headquarters of the Knights Templar. Visit the historic center of Tomar, including the Church of Santa Maria do Olival, which served as a 12th-century funerary pantheon of the Knights Templar, and the 16th-century Church of São João Baptista.

Afterwards it is time for lunch, based on your preference, but it is recommended that you lunch in Medieval Tavern. This is the best way to taste Portuguese gastronomy and feel like real Knight of Templar.

After lunch it is time to visit one more castle, that was part of the defensive line controlled by the Knights Templar - Castle of Almourol. The castle is situated in the middle of Tagus River, so the best way to reach the castle is by taking a boat.

Finally, enjoy relaxing landscapes and rolling hills on the drive back to Lisbon.
