TOMAR
Tomar is the Knights Templar capital of Portugal. Or rather, it is the capital of the Order of Christ which replaced the Knights Templar in Portugal. The castle and the convent, both in UNESCO’s World heritage list, combine to make a single entity, being the convent within the premises of the castle. The structure reigns over the surrounding plains, perched on top of a hill.
The city of Tomar is bathed by the Nabão river, whose banks are flanked by the dense canopy of trees and whose natural reflecting waters cool the surroundings.
