  • Such an amazing place and it's close to an great restaurant and a park. I will definitely stay there again if I'm come back to Tomar

    Carolina2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent space, careful to the smallest details (including coffee, spices to make food and even a first aid box!). It is in the historic center right in front of the Synagogue and 10 minutes from the castle. The house is sufficient for two people, it has heating, tourist information, the landlord is very friendly, self check-in and check-out. Would definitely go back!

    Anna2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Clear space, exactly as it is in the picture. Great location, but for those who are driving need to leave about 350 meters because this street can not park. Everything was great!

    Patricia2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay for whatever amount of time. We stayed just one night so did not make much use of the kitchen (but it looked great). The location is cute and super central! We parked in paid parking nearby, beware of the tariffs you need to pay the day ticket ahead of time otherwise you pay the hourly rate. Communication is great and the restaurant recommendations are also good although as we came on a Wednesday a lot of the options were closed. All in all great value for price.

    Marta2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Easy to find and well situated in the heart of the city. Everything I needed information was already available inside the house and the house is very well organized in space and very clean.

    Derik2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • The place is super located, close to everything. Would go back for sure.

    Fabiane2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Nice apartment. Very very clean and nice. There was the craze for the detail. Much more than is often seen in buildings in Portugal. The apartment seems completely renovated. Everything fixtures are perfect. The apartment is equipped with everything you need. Good heating with a heat blower for cold days. The only minus is that the windows are very small. We have been fully satisfied with our stay.

  • The house is located in the center of Tomar, making it possible to explore the city on foot. The check-in process is super practical. There is parking close to the house. Spacious and clean room. It could improve the sound more. I recommend.

    Filipe2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Kept very clean; nice, modern, spacious apartment. I didn’t notice a heater, but we were plenty warm, AC for warmer months. The shared kitchen has many options for you to self pay (low charge) coffee, snacks, beer and other drink options. I never bumped into anyone in the kitchen. Nice balcony off room 4 and the shared balcony. Quiet, but right on main strip; you can walk anywhere in town. Street parking is easy nearby, maybe even out front. There’s a great bakery a few doors down. Check in was a breeze and good communication. Excellent value. WiFi was good.

    Jackie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Joao's place is lovely and he was very helpful. We ended up getting to Tomar late in the evening and he sent us perfect instructions for getting into the building and our room. The room is comfortable and the balcony overlooks a cute, quiet street. We had a great stay!

    Timothy2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • João is very friendly, lives on the farm, and is available for whatever you need. The kitchen has self-service store roll products, with a piggy bank, that really ground me up. Apart from being fully equipped and such. The room great too

    Daniel2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Second time I am staying at João and repeat the comment from last time. Everything perfect, super central location. I hope to return in the future even a third time :)

    Tomar is a cozy and magical town. It’s very cheap than most other cities in Portugal. With so much to offer, it is a legendary town with more than 8 centuries of history and Portuguese cobblestone streets in everywhere. A Templar city which developed from the constrution of its castle, built upon the order D.Gualdim Pais, Grand Master of the Order of the Temple, in 1160. Later on, this castle became the Templar knights headquarters in Portugal. It is a place that combines an unforgettable beauty to the historical evidences, bursting with symbolism and mysticism. The Nabão, the river which crosses the city, is an example of that beauty. The magnificient gardens, as Mouchão and Mata dos Sete Montes are places that you will want to discover. And the Albufeira dos Castelo de Bode is also a place to visit, with its pine forest surrounded by water, with small islets, which provides a breathtaking scenary. The built heritage is another reason why you should not fail to visit this region. The Convento de Cristo, the ‘jewel of the crown’, is a monument dating from the twelfth century which was designated by UNESCO in 1983 a World Heritage. Characterized by different architectural styles, its main attractions are Charola (the Templars original church) and the famous Janela do Capítulo (window in manueline style), with marine motifs in honour of the Discoveries. In Tomar you can also visit the Museum Luso-Hebraico Abraham Zacuto, the oldest synagogue in Portugal. In Tomar you can also find tradition – every four years, in July, takes place the beautiful Festa dos Tabuleireiros, a ritual of pagan origin, in which women parade with trays on their heads, laden with bread and flowers. The colorful flowers and joy mingle in a bustling environment. Much more could be said, but….. You’ll have to come and discover it for yourself this local with history!

  • Catarina and João were excellent hosts. We had a few problems with appliances when we first arrived, but they took care of the problems right away, even purchasing a new washing machine because the old one was malfunctioning. They provided lots of information about Tomar and checked in with us regularly (but not excessively) to make certain that everything was fine. The apartment itself is very spacious and comfortable, and ideally located close to the center of town but also near grocery stores, banks, and anything else one could wish for.

    Denny2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely, spacious and clean apartment! We are a family of 4, and the apartment is fabulous and so comfortable. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, fluffy towels and strong shower. Kitchen is spacious and clean and fully equipped if you wish to prepare a meal. Free parking on the street. Catarina met us on arrival and she is a lovely & warm host, quick to respond to texts and emails. I accidentally left an item at her home and when I texted her, she went back immediately to look for it and texted me back when she found it. Thank you Catarina for hosting us, we have thoroughly enjoyed staying at your lovely home.

  • Sparkling clean, beautifully renovated apartment just across the bridge from charming old town of Tomar. Great for our group of 4. Catarina helpful and cheerful host with great communication. Apartment is spacious and comfortable with everything you could need. Would be perfect for long stay if needed. Supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, shops nearby.

  • Great apartment in a central location. Very friendly and helpful host. Highly recommended.

    David2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very neat and clean apartment, fully equipped. The location is super (center of Tomar), shops and bars / restaurants within walking distance. Parking in the street is free, although you have to be lucky to find a place. A street away is always room enough. The bedrooms are on a busy street where a lot of traffic passes. Tomar is a beautiful city. Other beautiful cities can be reached from Tomar. The hostess Catarina is very friendly and responds quickly to messages. Definitely recommended and we will definitely go back!

    O meu espaço fica muito perto de centro histórico de Tomar, numa zona sossegada, em frente ao Jardim Escola. De carro pode visitar a albufeira do Castelo do Bode em poucos minutos,visitar Dornes, visitar Fátima com apenas meia hora de viagem. A não perder: Castelo dos Templários .
    O apartamento foi comprado e restaurado para ser a nossa casa: optámos por manter o soalho de madeira original, bem como os azulejos hidráulicos da cozinha. O mobiliário vintage, que restaurámos para este apartamento, oferece-lhe personalidade.
  • Identical to the photos. Well located, in my view, very clean room. Very fragrant environment, have all kitchen utensils, towels of good quality. There is complimentary tea and coffee.

    This cool and comfortable one bedroom apartment is located at the heart of the city, one step away from the Nabão River and with a privileged scenic view over the Convent of Christ.
    This cool and comfortable one bedroom apartment is located at the heart of the city, one step away from the Nabão River and with a privileged scenic view over the Convent of Christ. The architectural design, authored by Architect José Carlos Cruz, was set out to rehabilitate an apartment from the end of the 1940's and restore the dignity it once had. Complying with a sharp idea of comfort, the apartment bears a unique signature: the colors, the coatings, the floorings, the contemporary vs. vintage pieces, the lightings, the small bookcases all layered and overlapping each other to enrich the space with a “touch of warmth”.
    Escaping the frenzy of the “big cities” and enjoying a unique blend of history, nature, cityscape and countryside is probably the best thing Tomar has to offer. Take a deep breath and let yourself go. In the meantime, besides the centennial history, discover the little restaurants and “tascas”, the shops from another era, the historic cafes and even a true Farmers Market with real local farmers. Here you will be able to enjoy the charm of a small countryside town in a contemporary setting framed by quietness and comfort.
  • This was my second stay and it was just as lovely as the first. This is a stylish and comfortable place to call home for a few days or weeks. The convenience of the washer/dryer, the strong internet, and a central location that offers easy walks to restaurants and cafes are all reasons to return again and again.

    Heather2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • I loved the house, exceptionally clean, bed / pillows / sheets / towels all fantastic. Lots of light, the indoor and outdoor deck super nice. Tranquility. Very well received at check-in. Very good location. It was an excellent stay!

    Mariana2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this charming and stylish space. The location was perfect and we were able to walk easily to all the hot spots. A few highlights were the super comfortable bed, the washer/dryer combo in the unit which we used and greatly appreciated, and the high quality materials throughout. Everything worked perfectly in the unit itself and I would stay again. One special touch was the birthday gift the host, Filipa, brought me on my birthday! It was so thoughful of her. Loved my entire stay!

    Heather2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • A practical and well thought out apartment. Spotless, clean, and cosy. A home away from home experience. Perfect location within a few minute's walk from the main attractions, restaurants and shop. Hotwater had sufficient pressure and temperature. WIFI was fast and dependable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    Malcolm2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and cozy space. Great location in the historic center. Good restaurants.

    Carina2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Tomar is a beautiful small city with a very relaxed atmosphere. The Convento de Christo, the Templars Castle and the aqueducto de Pegoes were just wonderful. The apartment was great with it's small balcony just beside the bedroom was perfect. Would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Tomar.

    Andre2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great apartment to see Tomar and it is perfectly located just across the river. The space is the perfect size and a lot of the amenities seem new. It is very clean. I was surprised by the access to a laundry machine in the unit and the dishwasher. There is also a terrace out back. I found the space relaxing and very quiet. The neighbour's cat visits a lot and it is adorable, however, it's fairly pushy so if you don't like cats, maybe steer clear. Personally I became best friends with the cat. I found this space to be better than I had expected, especially given the price. Only a few things I didn't like: one, the water pressure is very low if you want hot water. Second, although there is a free parking lot across from the apartment, it was always full and I never saw a spot there. We parked a little farther on at the market, which hopefully was allowed but I'm not sure. Another good thing was when you check in, a map is provided and you get information and advice about the town. I recommend this apartment.

    Jordan2019-07-18T00:00:00Z

    Located just 3 minutes away from Tomar city centre, Casa do Alambique is an accommodation unit in the countryside, in a very quiet area, so that you may benefit from the countryside silence and gain forces to discover a city full of history and cultural events. Casa do Alambique is a wide studio with accommodation for 3 people, in a double bed and a single bed. If requested, it is possible to accommodate an extra child, under 12 years old.
    The studio has no kitchen, but it has a fridge and some facilities that allow you to prepare / heat a light meal, as well as a kettle to heat up water and prepare some of the teas provided by the owners (plants collected in the property) or a warm coffee. If you wish, you may use the wood burning barbecue located outside and prepare a healthy meal. Although the studio has no water inside the room, it has a comfortable and wide private porch where there is a rustic stone sink, so you may prepare / rinse food and dishes. The access to the private bathroom is made through the porch, which, although it is not totally closed, is quite reserved, in order to guarantee your privacy. It is possible to use the bikes made available by the owners.
  • Both Claudia and her father, Joaquim, are absolutely impeccable. Always attentive and ready to help. Note the love and dedication they have in preparing the house to receive guests. We had a great stay and highly recommend Casa do Alambique.

Comfortable, spacious with extra touches (the homemade cake was delicious) makes this particular apartment a cut above all the rest. Our stay was only made better by Raquel’s hospitality and kindnesses.

  • We arrived by train into Tomar and were pleasantly surprised by Raquel's parents meeting us at the station. They walked with us back to the Airbnb which is only about 500 meters from the station. They showed us all the apartment features and gave advice on where to go. It's a large space, well equipped and perfectly decorated, located in the center of town. The templar castle on the hill can be seen from the living room! There is a short flight of stairs to climb up from the front door, but it was no problem for us. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to all.

  • Location, location, location - Hospitality, hospitality, hospitality! The 5 of us have stayed in 5 Airbnb's during this 15 day trip to Portugal, and this home was by far the BEST! We are Knights Templar fans, and all the castles, churches, cemeteries, graves and convents are very, very close by. And you don't have to fight crowds to see them! AMAZING! #1 for communications #1 for hospitality #1 for tips #1 for special touches #1 for CLEAN The father of the host even ran down our slow moving car in the streets of Tomar in order to show us exactly where the home was....and then stood in an empty parking spot right outside the front door until we turned around and parked in that spot!!! But the hospitality didn't stop there - our host, both mom & dad...and I believe a brother spent all the time we needed to fully understand where all the best sites and restaurants were!!! If Tomar is on your radar, you just can't pass this home by... We will definitely choose Raquel's place the next time we visit this Templar region. Thanks so much Raquel! The Convent, Almourol Castle, the templar church with the graves of the knights and the Medieval restaurant were some of the best that Portugal has to offer! Rick & Dee Burgess - November 2019

  • Raquel's apartment is wonderful! Very spacious, clean and well located! The hospitality is also excellent, Raquel cannot greet us at our late check-in time, but her parents were there and were extremely careful and attentive in explaining everything and giving hints of Tomar tours. Also, Rachel's mother had prepared a cake to greet us for check-in, a huge kindness and a great surprise! If you are considering booking this apartment, please go ahead! You will not be disappointed!

    A casa está localizada em Tomar, Santarém, Portugal. A casa está no centro histórico, mas numa zona recatada onde a tranquilidade impera.

Perto de tudo e ao mesmo tempo numa zona muito tranquila.
  • Francisco's place is perfect. The location is ideal: on a quiet street but within a short walk from all of the town's best sights and restaurants. Street parking outside was also a breeze. The beds were comfortable, wifi strong, and the space is big enough for a large group. We felt very comfortable and happy staying here.

    Annie2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • It's nice and bright apartment which has that historical feel about it some of the amenities can do with an update but I guess it's part of the charm and historical Tomar experience. Really enjoyed having 2 balconies and even breakfast outside.

    Airina2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is in such a great location, just up the road from the centre of town. The apartment itself is beautiful, with a really nice, classic style to it. It was an awesome place to stay!

    Brent2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a pleasure to have such lovely hosts.! We booked this house with one hours notice and the responses couldn’t have been swifter. We had excellent telephone correspondence with the hosts and they were there to meet with us. To know that the house belonged to the host’s Aunty made it all the more special. They have made the home an homage to their beloved aunt with her works of lace framed and on the wall. Their love and knowledge of the town really shone through. Would recommend visiting the castle on the hill. Advice: On the night we visited almost all restaurants were fully booked so a reservation is highly recommend

    Teresa2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful apartment in a great, central location. Very clean, and stylish. Lovely to sit out on the balcony for meals. Francisco was very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend staying here! Added bonuses were air conditioning, and a washing machine.

    Tomar, Santarém, Portugal

    "A Gosto" após um profundo e cuidadoso restauro, é uma casinha acolhedora, confortável e bem apetrechada, fazendo parte de um dos ícones na paisagem de Tomar. Fica situado no coração do centro histórico, junto ao rio Nabão, mesmo ao lado da Ponte Velha e da Capela de Santa Iria. Será assim o local ideal para receber quem procura descobrir a cidade e perder-se na sua beleza cultural, arquitectónica e paisagística.
    Serão referências lugares como o Convento de Cristo, inscrito na lista de Património Mundial, a Igreja de Santa Maria do Olival que é um dos exemplares mais emblemáticos da arte gótica em Portugal, a Ermida de Nossa Senhora da Conceição no mais puro estilo renascentista. O aqueduto dos Pegões do século XVII é uma obra monumental a merecer também uma visita. A Sinagoga no casco velho, mandada erigir pelo Infante D. Henrique é uma surpresa no seu interior Não poderá ser esquecida a Igreja Matriz de S. João Baptista, famosa pelo seu portal e púlpito manuelinos e pelas telas de Gregório Lopes. Situada na bonita e principal praça da cidade, em frente ao edifício da Câmara Municipal.
  • The apartment was very clean and cosy. We enjoyed the great bed and shower. The location is perfect. When we had an issue with the wifi, it was solved immediately. Would recommend to others.

  • The apartment was spotless and very tastefully decorated, loved the fluffy white towels. I enjoyed the information book on Tomar. I was especially interested in the history of the Knights Templar. We were well received and didn’t have to wait. Altogether a memorable experience, would definitely recommend this accommodation.

    Diana2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • They can expect the perfect host, with a most beautiful place and very modern conditions. Wifi was amazing, rooms are comfortable and Ines's Mother is fantastic and welcomed us with open arms. Not to forget the location which is in the heart of Tomar with every convenience you could need. We will be returning if Ines accepts us again for a longer period.

    Pasquale2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place well located. Warm welcomed. And mornings with birds singing. Great.

    Bill2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Ines' apartment is a great place to stay in Tomar. It is two doors from the river and ancient bridge across it. Nearby free street parking is readily available. It is in an ancient building but has been completely been renovated with modern furnishings and has a delightful, beautiful patio. It is very clean, quiet and comfortable. The only drawback is that the fridge has no freezer. But a supermarket two blocks away sold ice and Ines' mother, who lives in an adjacent unit. Kindly froze my freezer packs in her freezer overnight on my last night. So I had them for transporting my perishables in my cooler.

    Peter2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • The place is right in the heart of Tomar and has tremendous charm. The host was always available and quickly responded to any questions during our visit. The door is in well manicured courtyard, but there are stairs to a door that isn’t with the apartment. It can seem a little less private than one might think. It isn’t an issue but worth mentioning for full disclosure. We loved our visit.

The Coimbran Renaissance language is emphasised by the portico and the Nicolau Chanterène window. The inside is covered in diamond tipped 17th century tiles. The altarpiece of Christ on the Cross is attributed to João de Ruão. Arco das Freiras is the aerial passage between the Clarissa Nuns of the Santa Iria Convent and the former Palace of Friar Anthony of Lisbon. Summer schedule (April to September): Wednesday to Sunday, 2.00 p.m. to 6.00 p.m. Winter schedule (October to March): Wednesday to Sunday, 2.00 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. Our lady of the Conceição Chapel A small basilican church with three naves, built as a funeral chapel for D. João III, the king who ordered that it be built in 1547. This fine example of Italian Classicism, conceived by João de Castilho is the best evocation of Greek - Roman art in the Iberian Peninsula. The application of the Florentine urban style is noteworthy, as are the austere sobriety of the proportions, the windows positioned according to the direction of the sun, and, inside, the interweaving of objects between the naves and the transept, the dramatic vibration of natural light and the Corinthian decoration on the capitals. Chapel built between 1532 and 1540 in pure Renaissance style, begun by João de Castilho and finished by Diogo de Torralva. It was intended to be the burial chapel of King John III. Its beautiful and clear architecture turns it into one of the most remarkable early Renaissance buildings in Portugal. São Lourenço Chapel This was the spot where, on 10th August 1385, the day of the martyr S. Lourenço, the troops of D. João I joined those of Constable D. Nuno Álvares Pereira on their way to Aljubarrota. The Chapel and Monument mark the meeting place and the patron saint of the Chapel gave his name to the place. Aires de Quental, whom D. Manuel I had given the task of building a weapons factory there, also built the Chapel. Our Lady of the Piedade Chapel The former chapel of Nossa Senhora da Piedade our do Monte that Alcaide de Óbidos had built in the 14th century. You enter the covered porch through an ogival portal. It was restored and modified in 1613 by the people’s judge, Bernardo Ortiz Ochoa. The blue and white chequered tiles are 17th century, and the terrace and steps mid 19th century. Santo António Chapel It was built between 1953 and 1955, but contains architectural elements of a Renaissance chapel. In 1953 , with the construction of a Housing Project, built up the current chapel with architectural elements of the original. Santa Maria do Olival Church (near Sao Giao House) Gothic temple from the mid 13th century built on the site of a former temple built by D. Gualdim Pais. The Pantheon of the Masters of the Templars was the headquarters of the nullius diocesis with jurisdiction over the churches of the Discoveries. The interesting spatial structure with three naves served as a model for the São João Baptista church and other churches from the end of the Portuguese gothic period. Outside, the magnificent rose window is noteworthy, the lookout tower converted into a bell tower and the 16th century loggia; inside, the tombstone of Gualdim Pais, the tomb of D. Diogo Pinheiro and the images of Our Lady of Milk and the Holy Mothers. This Gothic church (13th century) was built as a burial ground for the Templar Knights. Gualdim Pais, the founder of the city, was buried in the church and his original tomb slab, dated from 1195 and bearing a gothic inscription, is still preserved inside. Schedule Summer (April to September): Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Winter (October to March): Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 12 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Closed: Jan. 1, May 1 and Dec. 25 São João Baptista Church Late gothic temple constructed on D. Manuel 1´s orders on top of the small chapel of the same name. It was completed at the beginning of the 16th century. The symbology of D. Manuel (the Royal Coat of Arms, the Armillary Sphere and the Cross of Christ) are seen in the tower and again in the pulpit and the north and south portals. On the outside is the tower with its three portals, the main one, the north and the south, reminiscent of an original temple. The spatial structure of the naves is identical to that seen in the Santa Maria do Olival church and is enriched by the sculpted stone pulpit and the 16th century painting, the greatest exponent of 16th century Portuguese pictorial art. The main church of Tomar is located in the main square of the town, in front of the Municipality (17th century) and a modern statue of Gualdim Pais. The church was built between the 15th and 16th centuries and has many interesting artistic details, like the flamboyant Gothic portal, the Manueline tower with a 16th century clock, the decorated capitals of the inner columns of the nave and several panels painted in the 1530s by one of Portugal's best Renaissance artists, Gregório Lopes. Schedule Summer (April to September): Monday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 12 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Winter (October to March): Monday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 12 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Misericórdia Church King D. Manuel I in 1510 founded the Misericordy of Tomar. The church of Nossa Senhora da Graça, or Nossa Senhora da Cadeia, is popularly known as the Misericord. A mannerist construction built in the second half of the 16th century. The image of the patron saint fills the niche which completes the elegant 16th century portico. Rectangular stone frames and chequered tiles decorate the nave. Of special interest is the 16th century panel showing the Eucharistic miracle of Saint Anthony. The Hospital substituted the Nossa Senhora da Graça Hospital (15th century) as a result of Prince Henry’s unification of all the hospitals and hospices in the town. Schdule: Temporarly closed. São Francisco Convent and Church The São Francisco Convent in a mannerist building set around two cloisters. It served the community after the Santa Cita house was closed. In the mid 17th century it replaced the Nossa Senhora dos Anjos chapel. A 17th century temple (1625-1660) is typical of Chã architecture. Mannerism is seen in the portal and the frontispiece of the façade. On the inside, where a single nave is covered at great height by a barrel vault, are the sculptures of an extremely rare Calvary and the four pictorial representations of the life of the Virgin. In the first chapel next to the Evangel, stands the image of Santa Iria, the patron saint of Tomar. Schedule: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Closed on public holidays, Jan. 1, May 1 and Dec. 25. II- The Historic Centre The Historic Centre The layout of the medieval town is a cross with 4 arms pointing to 4 cardinal points marked by the 4 convents in the town. The centre, where the Town Hall and the Mother Church are situated, is the Praça da República. It is from here that the main public and religious buildings radiate: to the south, the Synagogue, the old Misericord Hospital, the S. Francisco Convent and the old town square; to the north, the seat of the Municipal Assembly, the Chapels of S. Gregório and Nossa Senhora da Piedade and the old Anunciada Convent; to the west, the CastIe hilI, the litle Senhora da Conceição chapel and the Convent of Christ; to the east, the bridge, the old MilIs and Presses, the Sta Iria Convent, the way to the Sta Maria do Olival Church and the school area ending with the Polytechnic. lf we follow this symbolic geometry, it is interesting to note that with the “Marnueline” church in the centre, the Praça da República, there is a circle that unites the Charola of the Convent (the Templar Oratory) to the Anunciada, Sta Iria and S. Francisco Convents. It was in this circle, in this holy space, that Tomar developed. Windows Tomar possesses a great variety of windows of historical and architectonic interest, each one with a story to tell. Further up, touching the eaves, gargoyles, both decorative and functional, watch over the streets. And if in the Convent some of them are better known and reach greater heights of perfection, the Historic Centre is also an excellent place from which to observe them. By the new bridge the windows tell us of lhe Inns. Above the vertex of the second arch, the oldest window and the only original 15th century one looks down onto Rua dos Arcos. Turn the corner into Rua Torres Pinheiro and you find another this time with an upper bar with decorative elements and a geometrical shape. Go round lhe block as for as Rua da Saboaria and you will find simply designed popular houses, on two levels, with an outer staircase covered by a porch. Nearby, right at the beginning of Avenida Cândido Madureira on the left, immediately after a large building that houses a department of the Polytechnic, you will see the front of a popular house with its spotless white windows and walls, scattered with flower post reminiscent of Andalusian patios. Walking up the street, you will find the Casa dos Tectos, a 17th century building with guiliotine windows with geometric shapes on the apron. Next to this is the Tourism Office building, from the 1930’s Havanezabut with Renaissance doors and windows, which had belonged to old buildings in other parts of the town. You enter via a late 15th century doorway probably from the ‘Cubos’ (14th century granaries that were in what was the Praça da Ribeira); inside there is a double doorway. You can also see a corner window and three from the Renaissance, two of which are paired; one is original, the other a replica. On the outside of the building, you can see a sundial and gargoyles with lion´s heads. Retracing your steps back to the Avenida Cândido Madureira, and turning the corner into Travessa do Arco, you will pass under the typical arch which joins the two parts of the Palácio dos Velhos de Macedo, a 16th century building; at the end of the little street, there are guillotine windows with round-shaped aprons as well as a late-Renaissance corner window overlooking Rua Pedro Dias, where the Solar dos Calça Perra, a property that belonged to that wealthy family in lhe 14th and 15th centuries, stands out. Continue to the right until you reach Rua dos Moinhos, where you take a left towards the Courredora. When you reach the point where the street you are on crosses Rua Joaquim Jacinto, there is a ‘Manueline” window and, at nº 63, an interesting doorway, the decoration of which suggests two compasses that could indicate the owner’s profession, (builder ar stonemason). In front of you on Rua Infantaria 15, there is a building with elaborate balconies and 17th century windows, worth looking at. Further on, on Rua Aurora de Macedo, just before the hill rises to the castle, there are two 16th century windows with simple aprons and a doorway from the samee period. After this you go into Rua do Pé da Costa and turn right until you reach the Praça da República. Going down you find an 18th century palace with beautiful stonework and gargoyles also seen on the church tower. On your right, try to make out what the sculpture at the centre of the platband might be. Some think is a warrior, others the Archangel St. Michael and others even think it could be St. George. Now, go along the Corredoura and you will see on both sides of the street tiIed-fronted buildings and features of both Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. The building that housed lhe old Barateiro stores is a superb example of aplomb and blue elegance of real splendour. The blue edged with yellow is seen in the untiled details in the entire façade. Approximately halfway down the street there are two more examples of tiled-fronted buildings, wrought iron balconies and delightfully delicate friezes. At the top of the street before the Templars Regional Tourist Office, which has gutters rather than simple gargoyles, there are three buildings on your right as you go down the street, all predominantly blue. Note the penultimate one, with its unusual balustrade and the last one with an even more unusual blue façade imbued with allusions to Tomar. Go around the Casa Vieira Guimarães, built in 1922 in neo-manueline style. Note the detail in each metal fixture held by a console with a different floral motif. Walk along by the river until you come to Rua do Camarão, where on the right a nº 45 you will see one of the prettiest windows in Tomar. Finally, in Rua Silva Magalhães, find João Castilho’s Renaissance house that used to be the town library (now called Casa Manuel Guimarães), which has a corner window with balustrades, considered to be a national monument. III- Museums Matchbox Museum There is a collection of over 80,000 matchboxes, labels and books ofn matches, donated by Aquiles da Mota Lima to the City Counil in 1980, in the S. Francisco Convent.

Part of the castle (1160) is the late 12th century octagonal “Charola”, a Romanesque sanctuary of eastern influence. UNESCO classified this site as a World Heritage Monument in 1983. It covers an area of 54,000m2, forty thousand of which is built on, which is roughly the area of an average medieval town. In actual fact, it is the largest area convered by any monument in Portugal and one of the largest in the world. convento 3 There are three aspects to consider in order to appreciate this place: the artistic, found in every linear or square metre you cross and of which thw main doorway, the Charola, the Chapter window and the D. João III Cloister are examples of excellence; the functional, in that its main function was to accommodate warrior-monks and reclusive monks. Where with the surrounding woodland Natura is ever present; and its double significante, first in the consolidation of a country, and then through its expansion throughout the worls in the service of Christ.The Castle has three walled enclosures, of which the most importante are those of the Charola and the donjon. The great innovation came with the portentous base supports, which strengthen the fortifications. Between the fortress and the Charola, in the area where in the 15Th century the Prince held court, there are traces of Muslim occupation.The initial building of the Convent is owed to Infante D. Henrique who, as well as building his court here, also built the washing and the cemetery cloisters. In the 1500’s another seven were added. There are hardly any buildings in the worls with as many cloisters, making the Convent a particulary significant example. Portuguese architecture is extremely well documented here, confirming that the buildings evolved with their residents: the Templar church/ rotunda in the castle is Romanesque; the Gothic is seen in the cloisters from the time of Infante D. Henrique; at the start of the 16th century, all the exuberance of the Manueline style is on show in the Chapter window; the Renaissance is seen in the alargement of the convent from D. João III until the 18th century; Mannerism and the Baroque leave their mark on the Hostel Cloister, the main one and on many ornaments. The intervention of D. João V can be seen in the pulpit, the altar, the chancel and the main sacristy.When the Count of Tomar, Costa Cabral acquired the complex in the 19th century the first guard post for the convent was crated in 1843 and since then it has officially had a public cultural function and been supported by the Exchenquer. Only in 1986 did this service come under the jurisdiction of the government´s cultural department.

MILITUM XPISTI The Order of the Templars was a medieval religious and military Order (12th/14th centuries) and in 1160 its Portuguese headquarters was established in Tomar, thirty-four years aftet arriving in Portugal. The Order was created to defend the HoIy Sites in Palestine and was designated “Order of the Temple or Templars” due to the fact that, in 1119, the first Christian king in Jerusalem, Balduina of Bologna, had agreed to allow one wing of his palace, installed in the AI Aqsa Mosque (which had been built on top of what had been the Temple of Solomon), to be used to set up the Order. The Templars motto guided the life of the Knights who had to take vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, fast and eat from the some wooden bowl. Their motto (“Non nobis domine non nobis sed nomine tuo da gloriam’, - Not for us Lord, not foi us but for the glory of Thy name.) is written on the Orderis quadrangular standard encircling the black and white background to the “Pátea” cross.The standard is called Baucent, also the Knights war cry. templario The Knights wore coats of mail, helmets, and iron footwear, beneath a white cloak on which there was a large red cross and carried a shield, a lance, a club, a dagger anda sword. The Cross adopted in 1146 by lhe Knights of the Templars was of oriental origin and had already been in use for many centuries. It became common due to the expansion of Christianity in lhe Near East, namely the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium). It is called a ‘pátea” cross because it has curvilinear arms, which become wider from the centre to the ends.The circular Templar seal bears lhe inscription ‘Siglium Militum Xpisti’ around the edge with two knighls mounted on one horse in the centre.Right after it had been established, the Order spread throughout Europe, reaching the County of Portucale in 1126. The first documented reference to the Order was in 1128.It was D. Teresa, the mother of D. Afonso Henriques, who understood the importance of the Templars for the County, granting them Soure and all the territory between Coimbra and Leiria. With Portugal established as an independent kingdom, the expansion of the country southwards was assured by the conquest of Santarém in 1147. The military defence of the territory was reinforced further south in Tomar when D. Afonso Henriques granted this area to the Templars. Medieval Tomar was thus founded with the building of the Castle being started on March 1st 1160 (until the Gregorian calendar came into effect, this date had marked the start of the civil year, which was in fact linked to the Spring equinox and the Templars initiation ceremonies and could well have had a considerable influence on the choice of the symbolic moment at which to set up the Order).From that time on, the Order had its Seal, Pantheon (Santa Maria do Olival Church) and convent (mi the same church) until it was dissolved in 1312.The fall of S. João de Acre ( 291), the last bastion oftlhe Near East, caused the flight of the surviving Templars, one of whom was Jacques de Molay who was to become the last elected Templar Grand Master of Jerusalém and France.The return opf the Templars from the Holy Land and their enormous wealth gave the French King, Phillip the Fair, reasons to accuse them of heresy. He succededpersuading the Pope to suspend their privileges, weakeningtheir position in the Church, confiscated their property, arrested the Knights and had the Grand Master burnt alive along with his closest companions. The Pope dissolved the Order and donated their wealth to the Order of the Hospital. The consequences were immediate and the Order broke up in all areas. In Portugal, however, D. Dinis opposed the process and succeeded in preventing Templar property being handed over to the Order of the Hospital, creating forthwith Order of Christ (1319), which inherited the legacy of the Temple. CONVENT OF CHRIST THE CHAPTER WINDOW This is the most symbolic of the five windows in the Lower Chancel of the Convent church (the 5 manueline windows as a set become more symbolic if we think of the 5 empires/ the 5th empire and the Pentecost). A prime example of Manueline Art, it has become an icon od Portuguese heritage, full of allusions to the Discoveries and the history of Portugal. The profusion of typical manueline decorative elements and its intense symbolism make it a major reference for Portuguese Art. The façade into which it is set is an immense peiece of artistry which complementes its meaning and recalls other allusions, includingthe fact that the trays from the Tray´s Festival had been inspired by the bultresses on the side of the window. TEMPLAR CHAROLA This was lhe oratory of the Order of the Templars in the Castle. lt is a compact, cylindrical structure with eastern influences from lhe 12th/13th centuries and undoubtledly mililary in order to protect the sacred, alluding to the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.convento 6 On lhe inside it houses a central octogonal tambour with eight pillars, each composed of four addorsed columns, allowing ample room to pass through. In the early 1500´s, a wide arch was opened to the chancel that was it by an oculus, which on the outside was part of the decoration of the Chapter window. Diogo de Arruda did this work in the eral 16th century; João de Castilho was given the task of connecting the Chancel to the Charola by an annular vault. The entrance, a portentous doorway and richly decorated façade, are also by Castilho. The decoration of the Charola consists of Motifs on the structure of the tambour, paintings on the annular vault, wall paintings on the second level of the tambour (representing instruments of the Passion of Christ, by Fernãio Anes), eight of the fourteen originl panels are on the perimeter wall (by Jorge Afonso), wooden sculptures (representing Angels, Saints and Prophets) and a set of the Virgin with St. Jonh by Olivier de Gand. THE MAIN CLOISTER This is the most important and emblematic of the cloisters of the Convent of Christ, it was the cloister for meditation, processions and prayer. A masterpiece of Renassance architecture, designed by Diogo de Torralva, it has strong Italian lines and influences, though it was Filipe Terzi who completed it. However it was Castilho who had slarted it under D. Joao lIl’s orders, but work was stopped after the death of the king on lhe orders of the regent D. Catarina, for it to be altered according to new canons. It is a well-known fact that the work done previously by Castillo lies alongside that of Torralva, who replaced him, so much so that you can step into spaces designed by the latter without actually leaving the more “real” part, which is why this space is often referred to as the two cloisters ralher than one. The cloister has two floors, the last of which is a terrace with a balustrade (the Wax Terrace). The patio has a central baroque fountain in the shape of a cross of Christ, designed by Pedro Fernandes de Torres. Water, at that time was supplied by the Peges Aqueduct and thus the Fountain symbolically announced the arrival of water. It was in 2004 that the fountain started working again but now using lhe public water supply. THE ALMEDINA GATE In the castle walls there was an entrance gate to the “almedina” or little town, alsoknows as “St. Martínis district”. In the 16th century, on D. joão III’s orders, the Convent was adapted for use by a closed order, which meant demolishing this part (both inside and outside the walls). Thus, the gate was no longer in use and was closed. It is also knows as the “Gate of Bloods”, because a Muslim attack there in 1190 caused great bloodshed.

It has origins in the Cult of the Holy Spirit, which began in the 16th century, but we can see in it traces of earlier harvest festivals, such as in the profusion of flowers and the fact that bread and ears of wheat are present on the trays. The Procession, which is the high point of the festivities, takes place alongside a wealth of cultural and recreational events, the most important of which are the Boy’s Procession, the “Mordomos’s” Procession, the decorating of the popular streets, the popular games, the Partial Processions, the popular parties and the “Pêza”. The Festival starts on Easter Sunday when the Crowns and Standards representing all the parishes are brought out in a processionenlivened by pipers, drummers, firework launchers and bands. From this point on, this is repeated seven times but with the Crowns and Standards of the town and just a few on the parishes each time. As children are not allowed to take part in the big procession, the Boy’s procession was created so that the children could have their own festival. The Boy’s procession is an exact copy of the adults one but it in held on the previous Sunday. Children from Nursery and Primary school take part. Festa 2On the Friday before the Main Procession there is the “Mordomo’s” Procession, simbolising the entrance into the town of the sacrificial oxen, which, in the past, would have been slaughtered, and the meat distributed to the poor. In the past this procession was called the Procession of the Holy Spirit; today it is an impressive procession of carts and people on horseback with pairs of oxen at the head. The streets of the historic centre are closed to traffic and decorated with millions of hand made paper flowers, which represent months of intense but enthusiastic work. On the morning of the Saturday before the Main Procession, the Partial Processions come from the parishes; hundreds of Trays that will be paraded the next day. That afternoon, the traditional popular games are held in the Municipal Stadium (races with jars and barrels, tugs of war, climbing the greasy pole, quoits). On the Sunday, the Procession of Trays starts with the pipers and drummers. Next come the Standard of the Holy Spirit and the three Crowns of the Emperors and Kings. After that come the Standards and Crowns of all the parishes. The Procession is an immense weaving train of colour and music, made up for hundreds of pairs: the girls in white, with a broad ribbon tied across their front, carrying the tray on their heads; the boys in white shirts with sleesves rolled up, black trousers, a berent on their shoulder and a tie that matches the colour of the girl’s ribbon. The triumphal carts of breads, meat and wine, pulled by the symbolic sacrificial oxen, bring up the rear of the procession. The Trays the symbol and main decorative feature of the Festival of Trays. It should be the same height as the girl who carries it. It is decorated with paper flowers, greenery and ears of wheat. It also made up with 30 bread rools of a special size, each wighing 400 grams, threaded onto 5 or 6 canes. The later emerge from a wicker basket, wich is wrapped in a white embroidered cloth, and on top it isfinished off with Cross of Christ or a Dove of the Holy Spirit, the girl’s outfit consists of a long, white dress with a coloured ribbon across the front; the boy’s one is a simple, white shirt with sleeves rolled up, dark trousers, black beret on the shoulder and a tie the same colour as the girl’s ribbon. On the Monday afterv the Procession, to round off the Festival, tradition and solidarity demand that meat, bread and wine that were blessed the previous day – the “Pêza” – should be distributed to the needy. VI- Pegões Aqueduct Situated near Tomar, over the valley of the Ribeira dos Pegões, the Pegões Aqueduct is one of the largest and most imposing Portuguese aqueducts. It was built at the end of the 19th century. XVI and principles of the century. XVII, at the behest of Philip I, to supply the Convent of Christ with water. The history of this aqueduct is therefore strongly linked to that of the convent. However, in spite of its large size and its reasonable state of conservation, the Pegões Altos Aqueduct is relatively little known and is not even mentioned by most of the tour guides, who for the city of Tomar only refer to the convent and one or the other church. So anyone who sees this monument for the first time will certainly be amazed to discover that there is an aqueduct of this greatness so close to the city. The Pegões Aqueduct has a total length of about 5 to 6 km and in the larger section reaches a maximum height of 30 meters. Here the construction is composed of two rows of arches, the upper ones being round and the lower ones the ogivais. Originally the aqueduct was supplied by three water mothers. The aqueduct can be traversed on foot along its upper part, as there is a platform that accompanies the water gutter. This journey is a unique experience, since the other Portuguese aqueducts can not be traveled freely. VII-The dam of Castelo de Bode and the legacy of the Templars The meandering of the course of the River Zêzere guides us to a magnificent lake between the shale and magical mountains of the county of Tomar. In this area you can visit and enjoy the Castelo de Bode Dam, one of the main buildings in the set of dams in the Zêzere basin and one of the largest dams in the country. Located in Tomar, the dam bathes several lands once controlled by the Order of the Templars and that maintain an aura of mystery that fascinates all who visit them. The best known is Dornes, in the mythical peninsula that lends its name to it. The presence of the Order of the Templars is well visible in the pentagonal bell tower of Dornes, which survives almost intact until our days. For those in love with the legends that haunt the history of the Templars, a careful and attentive visit to the region is indispensable. But the most exciting feature of the Castelo de Bode Dam is its beautiful lagoons, which originated some of the most extraordinary river beaches in the country. Two of them, Alverangel Fluvial Beach and Fluvial Beach of the Montes, were distinguished in 2016 by QUERCUS with the classification of "Quality of Gold". Praia dos Montes, for example, is in a green area where several fountains flow. Castanheira Fluvial Beach - also known as Lago Azul - is another reference beach in Portugal. Here, the dam's waters reflect a magnificent and particularly intense blue. The tranquility of the "lake", surrounded by the mountains, makes it one of the most relaxing and unforgettable areas off the dam. In addition, it is a privileged place to practice water sports, namely wakeboarding, windsurfing, sailing, rowing, jet skiing, nautical and sport fishing (trout, bass, eel, red crayfish). Finally, we highlight the River Beach of Aldeia de Mato. Distinguished several times with blue flag, its calm waters are ideal to practice swimming or simply relax in the entree of the Nature.

Joao is himself very attentive and kind, without ever being overbearing: it was my birthday and he sent me a fun drawing wishing me a happy day, and was comprehensive of my failing technological devices (tablet & smartphone), being flexible to finding alternative solutions for communicating. Furthermore, the rooms probably couldn't be more central to the city, being very close to the Tourist Office (even though Joao has maps and suggestions for you!), the Mata Nacional and Casa dos Cubos, as well as of what is left of Palacio dos Estaus. With a supermarket across the street and plenty of cafes and restaurants around, it's a pretty perfect location. Add that to the familiar yet hotel-like experience and you have all you need!

The apartment is well located, free parking at the foot of the building. A small grocery store right in front. The city center of Tomar is nearby, no need for a car to go there.
