This is a “Must See” if you are in Tomar. History and architecture are wonderfully restored. And the story of the Knights of Templar is amazing. One could spend a whole day here - or a few hours. View from the wall is great -...More

One of our best Castles we visited during our vacation. Definitely holds a lot of history and many displays as we spent almost the whole day there.

Amazing structure and ornamentation evocative of the Templars. Very good value at 6 Euros entry for whole site. Go early or on a day when there are fewer coaches visiting....

Go! it’s amazing and well worth the price of admission. I would say of all our monument stops on our Portugal driving trip it was one of my favourites if you’re going through Tomar.

We visited the castel and it was just amazing. There are several places to park near the castle but they are not free. The castle is really well preserved and the tickets are very affordable. With some iconic spots like the "Capitulo" window and the...More

This site is worth a visit. It is an old templar castle with a covent. You can walk along the walls of the castle and see inside the old Keep area. The view is wonderful. The covent is magnificent in its beauty. You can see...More
