About
Much more than a simple, plain visit to the ex-libris of the city, the Convent of Christ, this tour guides you and involves you in the mythic Templar History that the teletransports you all the way to the beginning of Tomar’s history and the Templar Knights.This place has become, throughout the decades, a live museum of Portuguese History having been in this exact same place where important portuguese history pages were written. Leafing through this immense book we will be get in touch with the most diverse styles and forms which coexist there, making it the greatest example of this magnitude in the world. From the Charole and its uniquely painted panels to the illustrious Capitulo window or the architecture of the main cloister

Excelent and not to be missed!
Aug 2020
It was an incredible experience to get to know the city of Tomar guided by these 2 young men, David and João. The amazing quality of this guided tour stems from the deep historical knowledge and love that these local guides have for their home town. It was a pleasure and i'll be sure to come back for the other tours and experiences that Open Roads Portugal has to offer.

Very knowledgable local tour guide
Jan 2021
David took his time in explaining the history of the town and the convent, he was very knowledgable and passionate about it. We were glad to book this tour and not embarked alone, as the convent is rich in history that is as beautiful, if not more, than the magnificent structure itself. The place is massive and it would be best to have a guide to walk you through it.

Outstanding & Comprehensive Tour

Excellent tour of Tomar with David Sousa, a native of the region. The Convent of Christ is spectacular and should be on your itinerary. Plan to spend several hours on the site.
