This tour starts with a pick up from your hotel/accommodation in Lisbon and we will head to the city of Tomar.

Our first stop is at The Mira de Aire Caves are the largest in Portugal and are certainly a great option for those looking for a different tour. With 11km of extension, of which 600m can be visited, the caves were elected as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal. The tour is going descending, through 683 steps and although it looks a lot, it is not hard because there are several levels. During the route, several stops are made in many galleries, where the guide gives explanations including on how the elements in there are constantly formed, composing that scenario. It is a unique beauty.

Then, take a break for lunch at a local restaurant (own expense). Lunch time, based on your preference, but we advise you to have a 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.
