This town was created and building began on the castle on the 1st of March in 1160 by order of the first Grand Master of the all-powerful Order of the Knights Templar in Portugal.One of the most important portuguese towns historic wise, with an important role at portugal history for the last thousand years.


The Igreja da Santa Maria dos Olivais was considered as the mother church of the Order of the Knights Templar in Portugal and it is the resting place of many of the past Masters.The 12th Century Castle attached to the Convento looks down on lively streets and historic buildings.

    Vitor, fantastic photos of Tomar!! This was one of the places that I intended to visit while driving Portugal, but ran out of time in my last few days. Thanks for giving me a glimpse of what I missed!
