“Magical insight into the history of this wonderful place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

I recently took part in a private guided tour of this wonderful historical site. Once home to The Knights Templar of Portugal.

World UNESCO site.

A guide took me though all the history step by step along the way and I found it a wonderful and enjoyable experience.

A must to see when visiting this area.

“Extremely nice”

I think it is the second nicest place at Portugal. Ah, the Order of Christ, glory of the discoveries overseas! Do not miss the Manueline Window!

“The stone treasure of Tomar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

In the middle of the mountains, not very far from Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, an ancient beauty sleeps within the limits of the small city of Tomar. The "Convento de Cristo" is unique in the world and everyone should visit it. Built over generations, the monument has on it's walls the presence of an uncountable number of an uncountable number of symbols related especially with the Templar Knights. Not only the monument but instead the whole city.
The best time to stay in Tomar is during Spring, but it's up to you to decide, just be sure you don't go during the Winter because it usually rains a lot.

“Splendid and full of surprises”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Words do not do justice to this incredible convent. The moment you start walking towards the imposing entrance, you think you will have seen the best, but that is just the beginning. Every corner, room, hall, ceiling and so forth is an ongoing festival of surprises that will blow you away in amazement!
