Visit Tomar in 2024

Tomar is a fascinating mix of the historical and the picturesque. Located in central Portugal, it was once the seat of the Order of the Knights Templar. Its well-preserved medieval architecture, particularly the Convent of Christ, has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is an awe-inspiring place to visit. The Convent of Christ itself is a labyrinthine structure filled with opulent Manueline decor, fortified walls, and even a legendary Charola — a Templar round church.
As you wander around the town, you'll notice a delightful array of quaint shops, cafes, and restaurants. These establishments often overlook scenic spots like the peaceful Nabão River that runs through Tomar. The town also boasts beautiful gardens, like the Mouchão Park, offering moments of solace and natural beauty amidst historical surroundings.
For those intrigued by history, Tomar offers several noteworthy museums, including the Matchbox Museum and the Museum of the Luso-Hebraic Synagogue. The latter provides an in-depth look at the Jewish history in the region. Festivals like the Festa dos Tabuleiros, held every four years, highlight the town's vibrant culture, where you can experience traditional dances, music, and processions.
