Tomar - Templar Knights Castle

Templar Knights Castle

Castle of Tomar, Tomar, Portugal
45 mins

About the tour

The Templar Knights were invited into the nearly born kingdom of Portugal by the mother of our first king. What was their role in the conquest of territories from the moors? Why was Tomar chosen for the headquarters of this military and religious order? All this and much more while we explore the walls of the castle and learn about the techniques of defense used back then. Officially extinct in 1312, the order actually underwent several changes in Portugal and survived under a different designation: Order of the Knights of Christ. What happened to the Castle at this point? Come find out!

Why are they tip-supported?
