  • Absolutely incredible. Magnificent history. There were points that I felt like I was not worthy to be in the presence of the history and beauty of the convent. The tour is a good hour and a half. Be prepared to walk.
  • Templar castle. Nice garden. Lots of history ...
  • Very nice Templar castle! Very well preserved and with lots of rooms to visit.

Where to stay in Tomar

Stay at one of Tomar's centrally located mid-range hotels within its historical core to put yourself in prime position for sightseeing and taking in the local atmosphere. While accommodation options lie on both banks of the Nabao River, try staying in one of the hotels or apartment complexes on the western bank for sweeping views across of the other side, a comfortable room, and a quick walk to the city's 12th-century church, a World Heritage Site. You can manage costs by staying in a locally owned bed and breakfast or guesthouse, which often provide a meal. These accommodations often come with local advice on sightseeing and nearby activities, and may even get you into a traditional Portuguese residence.
