You have to know that the town of Tomar was born inside the walls of the “Convento de Cristo”, constructed under the orders of Gualdim de Pais, the fourth grand master of the Knights Templar in the late 12th century. Tomar can be seen as one of Portugal's historical jewels and, more significantly, as the last Templar town to be commissioned for construction. The city was especially important in the 15th century when it was a center of Portuguese overseas expansion under Henry the Navigator, the Grand Master of the Order of Christ, successor organization to the Templars in Portugal. Almost in the center you have the nice “Republic Square” with old houses, it also has the statue of “D. Gualdim Pais”, the house of common ando n the oposite site of the square you have the church of “São João Baptista”. Nice location to visit.

This square is surrounded by interesting buildings so a lovely place to rest and watch the world go by. There are also many nice cafes and restuarants for refreshments.

Once we finished our walk around the castle we headed down to the city centre! We passed this small square with a beautiful church! The shopping street is following afterwards! Many restaurants around too! Just before you reach the square, there are public toilets - free!

Republic square is just such a pristine piazza in the middle of the old town. The pavement, made of black and white squares set in diamond patterns, gives it a stunning beauty. The Church, Igreja Saint John the Baptist, is on side and the Town Hall on another. The town hall is beautiful, done in a 16th century Mannerist style. In front of the church there is a statue of a Templar Knight which is very interesting. Just a great place for photographs and appreciating Portugal's long and noble history.

The streets radiate out from the square. The buildings along the streets are quite beautiful. The church and bell tower are on one side of the square a government building on the other with the statue of founder Gualdim Pais in the Center. Nice views of the castle too
