Overview

Our first stop will be the Almourol Castle. It is believed that the castle was constructed on the site of a primitive Lusintan castro that was later conquered by the Romans during the 1st century B.C. The castle of Almourol is one of the more emblematic and cenographic medieval military monuments of the Reconquista, and best representation of the influence of the Knights Templar in Portugal.

The journey proceeds with a visit to the Castle of Tomar integrating the Convent of Christ and that is certainly one of the most beautiful historical legacy of the Middle Ages in Portugal.Originally a Templar stronghold built in the 12th century. After the Order of the Knights Templar was dissolved in the 14th century, the Portuguese branch of the order was turned into the Knights of the Order of Christ, which supported Portugal's maritime discoveries of the 15th century.

The Convent of Christ of Tomar is one of Portugal's most important historical and artistic monuments and has been in the World Heritage list of UNESCO since 1983. We will also visit several interesting spots of the city of Tomar.

Lunch at the Medieval Restaurant a Taverna, a restaurant where medieval times are recreated. After lunch our journey proceeds Castelo de Bode Dam towards the village of Constância, a nice village near the junction of the two rivers Tagus and Zêzere, a very special place for its beauty.
