The Knights Templar and the Military Orders

Culture and History tour in Tomar,  Almourol and Dornes

Portugal is a wonderful place to visit. It is very old, even older than most of the European countries, what makes it especially attractive for the history connoisseurs and devotees.

The Arab army moved to the other parts of the Iberian Peninsula, including Portugal, and most of the people were afraid to fight them back, and as a result the Moors started to rule these countries. It lasted for several centuries, and finally people got strong and wanted to regain their countries. Several religious orders had such a goal in the 12th century. Our private tour in Portugal begins in Lisbon and is concerned with all the places that are linked to those exciting events.

As your private guide in Lisbon I will tell you about the Moorish conquest in details and you will have a very interesting and informative “history lesson”. We will explore the streets of Tomar and many other cities in order to find traces of the Templar Knights and their legacy in Portugal. By the end of the tour you will be able to tell what impact the Templar Knights made upon the development of Portugal. We will also visit the famous Castle of Tomar (Convent of the Order of Christ), and several Templar Fortresses in Portugal.

We will also explore the introduction of the Military Order of Christ the followers of the Knights Templar after their persecution in France. You'll discover the important role played during the discoveries and the several theories about the location of the Knights Templar famous treasure!
