The Templar Castles Route

In this tour we will know 2 of the most beautiful castles of this 

region which had the most important military strategy in the

Christian reconquest.


The tour begins at 08h30 - pick up at your hotel 


Our first stop will be the Almourol Castle 


It is believed that the castle was constructed on the site of a primitive Lusintan castro that was later conquered by the Romans during the 1st century B.C. The castle of Almourol is one of the more emblematic and cenographic medieval military monuments of the Reconquista, and best representation of the influence of the Knights Templar in Portugal.

The journey  proceeds with a visit to the Castle of Tomar integrating the Convent of Christ and that is certainly one of the most beautiful historical legacy of the Middle Ages in Portugal.



Originally
a Templar stronghold built in the 12th century. After the Order of the Knights Templar was dissolved in the 14th century, the Portuguese branch of the order was turned into the Knights of the Order of Christ, which supported Portugal's maritime discoveries of the 15th century.

The Convent of Christ of Tomar is one of Portugal's most important historical and artistic monuments and has been in the World Heritage list of UNESCO since 1983.
