Founded in the 11th century, the Order of the Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, commonly known as the Templars, played a key role in the crusades and battles for the conquest of Portuguese territory.

Having received several manors and properties from D. Afonso Henriques, he left us a vast and rich historical legacy, especially north of the Tejo River, where he developed a unique and effective fortified defense system.

It is in this region that we center our Historic Templar Route, visiting Tomar, Almourol and Santarém.

On this tour we will visit Tomar and the Santa Maria dos Olivais Church. Built in the 12th century, it served as a pantheon where the Grand Masters of the order were buried. Later, it was elevated to Order of Christ Cathedral, having under its purview all the churches in the territories found in Africa, Asia and also America.

Departing to discover the historic center of the city, we highlight the São João Baptista Church and the Republic Square. Here you will learn a little more about the life and history of this picturesque city.

Going up along the Sete Montes Woods we will reach the Templar Castle and Christ Convent. This monumental complex, begun in 1160, spans the entire period of the Templar presence in our country and was the central command point of the fortified defense system, made up of several castles and watchtowers.

From the 15th century, the Order of Christ reused and modernized the old Castle, creating one of the most intriguing and mysterious national monuments, the Christ Convent, classified since 1983 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Almourol Castle was erected around 1170 on a small island about 20 meters above water level, having a strategic importance in the so-called Tejo Defensive Line.

Heading south and enjoying the fields and plains of Ribatejo, we find Santarém. This city has as one of its most emblematic monuments, the medieval fence of Portas do Sol and the Torre das Cabaças. From here we will be able to appreciate the entire Ribatejo plain, Tejo and understand the key strategic importance of this place.

Filled with memories and good times, we will return to Lisbon where we will drop off at the place where they are installed.The suggestions are ours, but the decision is yours, enjoy to the fullest with this tour made for you and thinking of you.
