Very curious church from early XVI century, later enlarged and altered, that combines elements from different periods and styles: late gothic, baroque and Manueline. The paintings adorning the walls are also from the XVI century.

When in Tomar, you should take 15 minutes to view this site too. The portal is very nice, and inside there is some great art too.

The church is at the centre of Tomar, and so it's hard to miss! It is a bit sparse compared to Lisbon churches, but then again, it is not in Lisbon! Worth visiting for its connection to the templars.
