Day Trip to Tomar From Lisbon

In a country where one stumbles on the ancient at every step, Tomar still stands out as a historical place. Your local guide will tell you why. And you bet he is proud of it.

You will explore an old town whose streets lead you inevitably to the first thing you set eyes on — the castle walls crowning the hill. But once there, you will discover much more. Renaissance, baroque, medieval. Convent, cloister, church. And a mysterious round-shaped oratory.

And your guide will tell you stories of templars and kings, of the Old World and the New.
