The Legacy of the Crusaders

Not far from Chamusca we find an enchanting castle, which is located on a small island in the middle of the river.

The Castillo de Almourol can be reached by boat.

We come through the city of Tomar. This is shaped by its past. In the Middle Ages, this city was one of the strongholds of the Knights Templar. Their insignia can still be found everywhere.

The residents are very proud of their history, even if the knights found an inglorious end. Its stronghold, the Convento de Cristo, can be visited.
