Time to visit more castle, that was part of the defensive line controlled by the Knights Templar. Castle of Almourol. Situated in the middle of Tagus River, so best way to reach the castle is by taking a boat.
Then, take a break for lunch at a local restaurant (own expense). Lunchtime, based on your preference, but we advise you to have lunch in Medieval Tavern. That is the best way to taste Portuguese gastronomy and feel like real Knight of Templar.
Next, head to the charming city of Tomar, home to some of Portugal’s most impressive monuments and buildings. Gain insight from your guide about how the Knights Templar used a religious code to form the city, like the four monuments stationed around the city to resemble a crucifix. In Tomar, see famed monuments such as the 12th-century Convent of Christ, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and visit the Castle of Tomar. Afterward, venture to the Gothic-style Church of Santa Maria do Olival, a gorgeous 12th-century church erected for the Knights Templar.
Finally, enjoy the relaxing landscape on your drive back to Lisbon.
