About this Tour

tomarWe start the tour with a visit to Monastery of Santa Maria da Vitória, known as the Batalha Monastery, a masterpiece of man, as recognized by UNESCO to classify it as a World Heritage Site.

Warrant build in 1388 by King John I, in fulfillment of the promise made to the Virgin Mary, where Portugal won Spain in Aljubarrota Battle. It was built over two centuries, during the reign of seven kings. It’s a jewel of gothic flamboyant (late gotic) and Manueline architecture. It was the first pantheon of Portuguese kings, houses the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and it’s a symbol of royal power and divine legitimation of the Avis dynasty.

We follow towards Tomar, a city with a very important role in Portuguese and World History and closely related to the monks route of the Order of Knights Templar.

After a brief city tour, we will visit the Convent of Christ. Situated high on a hill, was founded in 1160 by the Grand Master of the Templars, Dom Gualdim Pais. The Convent of Christ belonged to the medieval Knights Templar and was the headquarters of its heiress, the Order of Christ. In the 15th century, Prince Henry planned here most of his explorations to the New World. It is quoted as the pinnacle of the Manueline style in Portugal and is classified by the UNESCO as World Heritage.
