Lovely well kept castle & grounds, we didn’t pay to go into the convent but it was just nice walking around the grounds & taking in the views.

Fantastic opportunity to put cultural portugal on map, BUT, no guide book for sale on entry only at exit and not even in shop. They did have audio aids but never found where you got them from. No guided tours arranged on site. No information...More

We had been told by so many people that we had to visit the castle, so we did and it was really worth it. The sheer scale of it is difficult to comprehend so I found myself taking each section as a separate entity. The...More

The castle encloses the Convent of Christ, which I have reviewed already. One can wander the castle grounds and observe the fine castle walls. The construction of castle began in the mid-12th century by the Knights Templar and sits on a height overlooking the valley...More

It is so interesting seeing the views and learning about the history. It is more interesting if you have someone to tell you the history but don't miss it even if you have to do it on your own.

This castle is absolutely amazing to see and yet, gets overlooked by most tourists in the area. Anyone with an interest in the time of The Crusades and The Templar Knights will find Tomar fascinating and mystifying. Well worth a day trip from Lisbon.

The photos that show the "round" building with the bells...that is the chapel and it is amazing to see inside!

Rather than seeing one decorative style each in 8 places, you can see lots of styles in one place because of how the site developed. Even on a bad rainy day, this was a great spot!!

Absolutely fantastic castle and abbey. it was cold and rainy but we enjoyed every minute in the castle. It's possible to drive uphills but we took a walk and were really impressed by the fortress.

A very impressive place not to be missed while in Portugal. Build on the top of the hill this is a beautiful castle with a long history. Very well preserved. Walking distance from the very pretty town.
