What to expect

Just a short distance inland from Lisbon, you'll find an area boasting a wealth of medieval history. This full day excursion exploring the world of the Knights Templar, takes in the historic sites of Almourol Castle, the village of Constancia and Tomar – with its famous Convent of the Order of Christ and Templar Castle.

First up is a guided tour of the Templar stronghold of Almourol Castle – after which you'll see its fortified battlements during a boat ride on the River Tagus. Then it's on to explore the riverside village of Constancia, before travelling to Tomar. Its immaculately preserved castle and convent complex have earned it the UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

You'll have some free time in Tomar for lunch and to explore the cobbled streets and chessboard plazas of the old town. In the afternoon, you'll enjoy a guided tour of the Convent of the Order of Christ and the Templar Castle. A day steeped in history.
