We start the tour driving north to Tomar, through the agricultural lands of Ribatejo. In Tomar we visit the Convento de Cristo (Convent of Christ), originally built by the Knight Templars, and we explore its Templar castle, romanesque round, manueline church, renaissance convent and monastic enclosures (ticket included). We will learn how the Knight Templars originated the Order of Christ, and how this new order became pivotal in the Portuguese Age of Discoveries. This convent was then partly forgotten until becoming the UNESCO world heritage site of today.

We then head for lunch in the beautiful town of Tomar, with the beautiful Nabão river crossing the town. After hearing about the Jewish heritage in the city and explore its narrow streets full of history, we stop for free time for lunch, where you can enjoy a meal of traditional Portuguese food in one of its many restaurants (meal not included in the price).

After lunch, we will return to the car and head back to the town of Mafra. There, we will be amazed by the scale of the sumptuous baroque Mafra National Palace, with its 220-meter-long façade, 1200 rooms and 4700 doors and windows. We will have free time to explore it’s many rooms without missing the big library with its colony of bats, which protect the books from harmful insects. Learn how the palace played an important role to the end of the Portuguese monarchy. If there is time, enjoy a traditional sweet in a typical pastry shop (not included) before returning back to Lisbon.
