Descrizione

Set off on a trip round the historic Knights Templar Region and the district of Santarém!

Start your pilgrimage with a visit to the Castle of Almourol. Erected in 1171 in the very centre of Portugal, it is built on a tiny island in the middle of the Tagus River. This castle served as stronghold for the Knights Templar during the Portuguese Reconquista. It was also renovated by the Visigoths and the Moors.

Then continue your visit to the picturesque village of Constancia, where the famous Portuguese poet Luís Vaz de Camões lived.

Afterwards head to the town of Tomar, an important territory for the Templars in the 15th century. Here, you'll visit the Church of Santa Maria do Olival, the general headquarters and pantheon of the Templar masters.

Explore the Church of Saint John the Baptist in the town’s main square. In the same area you will find the best preserved medieval synagogue in Portugal, built in the 15th century by Prince Henry the Navigator. Take a pause to enjoy some traditional Portuguese pastries.

Finally, you'll visit the Castle and Convent of the Order of Christ, a Templar stronghold and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
