Walking around the castle and on the ramparts is a unique experience that allows for multiple views of the town of Tomar and the church. Worth leaving aside an hour or two for exploring the site!

This is a fortress church built by the Knights Templar. It has a distinctive altar built for worshipers on horseback, as the Knights were wont to do. If you visit the Convento of Tomar, this will be included.
