“One of the most stunning site in our trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

We knew it was going to be beautiful but the vast size of the building surprised us many times. You could nearly see the pilgrims the corridor where they went to their bedrooms, the famous window of course and the closters. Beautiful. Keep at least 2 hours to visit, they close 17:30 during winter 18:30 during summer months.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Not to be missed! This Templar church is spectacular. The octagonal chapel, which has been recently renovated, is extremely lovely. Parking is easy - just pay at the metre, however, the parking fills up fast, so get there early.

“Out of this world architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Super and well preserved Convent, in a lovely position overlooking Tomar. Gorgeous Manueline architecture, thought provoking internal spaces and a lot to see. Lovely old kitchens, and a ethereal atmosphere in the long gallery where the monks rooms were. Cost is a very reasonable 6€ for a adult, if you are a student bring your card you get a discount.

“worth the climb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Fantastic setting, you can spend hours walking through the different buildings and corridors and rooms.
Next time we won't take the cobbled path down to the town, it's very bad on your feet.
