What to expect

The Ribatejo region where the tour is based is a beautiful, green and tranquil area. We will give you an extraordinary experience in this magical region.

Within a short radius of our luxurious hotel are wonderful abbeys, castles and other sites that link directly to the Knights Templar, one of medieval Europe’s most pivotal societies. The city of Tomar was the headquarters for the Order of the Knights Templar founded alongside Portugal itself. We will visit some of the most important and historical sites connected with the Knights Templar. But it will be much more than just visiting castles and abbeys. We will also show you the marvellous countryside and enjoy great food and wine.

There is much to see but there will be plenty of time to relax as well. Our intention is that you will have the experience of a life time.

The tour is designed for lovers of history, culture, and tradition. You will visit some of the most important historical Knights Templar locations in the world.

DAY 3

Serra de Aires Natural Park

In the afternoon we will walk trails down the valley below the caves taking us through quaint villages, shady paths and superb scenery as the valley opens out.

Our visit today will be to the valley of the river Tejo and the hauntingly beautiful castle of Almourol.
