  • Is the oldest sacred space of riiquíssima history nabantina. The tomb of Gualdim Paes, Grand Master of the order of the temple, is there. A beautiful Roman-Gothic building which invites us to contemplation and requires us to know our history.

  • The story of Gualdim Pais the founder of the city of Tomar is also told in this place. Many of the secrets of the city taking pass through this place of worship and not only.

  • I disagree with some of the views I read, worth your visit. Although I didn't have the luck of other travelers, since there was no one to teach her and at that moment was in works inside, so we saw it briefly to do not disturb to workers. It is an interesting and relevant Church by its history, built on a Roman settlement. In old photographs, I could appreciate that their name was surrounded by olive trees, hence, they are currently scarce. But I insist on going to see it.

  • It was considered in the age of discovery Church of all churches in Africa, Asia and the Americas. Beautiful set designed the Gothic church and the Belfry Tower of three storeys to the border Temple. Considered "Pantheon" of Templar Masters.

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.
