A place not to miss on a trip to Portugal, great piece of architecture. We visited Tomar this June and the place wasn't crowded

Only 6 euro entrance but it's worth it. You can visit a lot and get some indication of how it must have been. We are not too much into these kind of attractions, but we enjoyed it. It easily takes 2 hours to visit it...More

Grand place with lots of history and no crowds. Outstanding architecture inside and out, intriguing wall paintings. Just outside Tomar center, you can easily burn 2 hrs here. Do get a multi site ticket that includes Alcobaca and Batalha monasteries.

Seeing the Convent of Christ was a high point in this part of my life. Part of the exhilaration had to do with having modest expectations. I didn't expect it to be so extraordinary. The complex as a whole is sprawling and many parts were...More

We stayed at the Hotel Dos Templarios for one night. We were limited in time so we chose this attraction. It was surprisingly large and so historic

The architecture and design of this convent is outstanding. The property is aging well and the light depending on the time of day (mid-morning) was wonderful for pictures. Well done!
