Knights Templars tour
Knights Templar tour is a private sightseeing tour where you will travel through time. Visit the Convent of Christ, the medieval village of Óbidos and the Batalha Monastery.
At the beginning of the day your local guide / driver (English speaking) will pick you up at your hotel in Lisbon and will take you to a full day private tour of Tomar, Batalha, Nazaré and Óbidos.
Discover this wonderful historical area by visiting the impressive Convent of Christ in Tomar, considered a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983. The convent was founded by the Templar Knights in the 12th century and became the headquarters of the Templar Knights in Portugal in the 13th century. In the 14th century the Order of Christ replaced the Templar Order and the convent was named Convent of Christ. The castle and Convent of Christ have examples of Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline and Renaissance architectural styles. The so-called Window of the Chapter House constitutes one of the masterworks of Manueline decoration.
Continue your tour with a visit to the Batalha Monastery, a UNESCO Heritage site. The monastery is of the late gothic Portuguese style, where you can find a mix of the gothic style with the Manuelino style – symbol of the Portuguese maritime expansion.
Before heading to the medieval village of Óbidos, enjoy the breathing views of Nazaré, a fishing village where you can find tasting grilled fish. Before leaving you at your hotel at the end of your tour, you still have time for a walk in the medieval village of Óbidos. Óbidos is a magnificent village with white houses surrounded by very well preserved walls. A walk through Óbidos is a travel through time where you can glimpse the medieval times in Portugal. Don’t forget to enjoy the sweetness of Óbidos local liqueur, the famous Ginginha!
