Visit the Convent of Christ and the Templar Castle of Tomar
Open Roads Portugal is a tourism brand created by 3 locals based in the beautiful city of Tomar, Portugal. Tomar is a city located in the Ribatejo region in the centre of Portugal, home to the UNESCO Heritage site, Convent of Christ, headquarters of the millennial Templars, of a unique synagogue in the country and of many other century’s old monuments and churches. Encapsolating an unmatching living history which permeates every corner, picturesque streets and an unrivalled natural beauty, Tomar makes one of the favourite spots for the tourists. ORP has been developing for a year now guided tours throughout the city, having already reached many people on the way with its compelling story-telling. We want to provide tourism which is truthful to reality, showcasing the local side of Tomar in the most genuine and original way we can! Come meet us!
Much more than a simple, plain visit to the ex-libris of the city, the Convent of Christ, this tour guides you and involves you in the mythic Templar History that the teletransports you to the beginning of Tomar’s history and the Templar Knights.
This place has become, throughout the decades, a live museum of Portuguese History having been in this same place where important Portuguese history pages were written. Leafing through this immense book we will get in touch with the most diverse styles and forms that coexist there, making it the greatest example of this magnitude in the world. From the Charole and its uniquely painted panels to the illustrious Capitulo window or the architecture of the main cloister
