Small-Group Tour: Knights Templar Historical Tour from Lisbon
US$93.13
Overview
Discover the secretive history of the Knights Templar in Portugal on a small-group tour from Lisbon to the towns of Constancia and Tomar. You’ll learn the Templars' story, as you explore Almourol Castle, the Convent of Christ, and other fascinating Knights Templar sites that offer a unique perspective on the order of Christian knights.
What to Expect
After meeting up in central Lisbon, travel to the mysterious Almourol Castle, built by the Knights Templar to defend their territorial boundaries. You’ll see the castle on the water, as you approach by boat and then have time to explore the fortifications.

Next, continue to the village of Constancia, stopping by the magnificent Parque Constancia for a leisurely stroll and a taste of a local delicacy made from almonds and eggs.

In Tomar, you’ll see an entire city built by the Knights Templar, with four religious monuments that form a massive cross. Tour the Castle of Tomar and the Convent of Christ, a 12th-century UNESCO World Heritage Site, and enjoy a full afternoon in Tomar, where you can purchase lunch at a local restaurant and visit more Templar sites.

Following a day of Templar mysteries and lore, this tour concludes with drop-off at the original departure point.

Strong tour of history

It was a very good tour. My guide (Ricardo) was terrific in conveying a remarkable amount on information and the sites were well worth visiting. No issues with pick-up - he was prompt. Sights well worth seeing.
