Some notes about Tomar:
Located just 10 minutes away, the Castelo do Bode dam retains the water of the river Zêzere within the limits of the municipality of Tomar and allows the practice of leisure activities and water sports, such as water skiing, wakeboarding, sailing, rowing, canoeing, windsurfing , kayaks, fishing and swimming. With more than 60 km in length, the Albufeira de Castelo do Bode is the second largest hydrographic basin in the country.
The city has several historical monuments, including the Convent of Christ, declared World Heritage, the Church of São João Batista, the Church of Santa Maria dos Olivais (where the remains of Gualdim Pais, Templar master and founder of the City.)
As well as the Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Conceição - being built with the function of a regal pantheon. You can also count on the Convent of São Francisco, which has a Mannerist chapel, and the Convent of Santa Iria, finally, the Ermida de São Gregório, which has a circular architectural structure.
Founded by D. Gualdim Pais in 1160, Tomar was the seat of the Orders of the Temple and of Christ and had in Infante D. Henrique one of those responsible for its growth.
In 1983, UNESCO recognized the Templar Castle - Convent of Christ as a World Heritage Site and in the early 1990s the first steps were taken towards the restoration and consolidation of the Historic Centre.
The plan of the medieval city (historic area) is orthogonally organized in a layout attributed to Infante D. Henrique. The center, where the Town Hall and the Igreja Matriz are located, is Praça da República, from which the main public and religious buildings radiate: to the south, the Synagogue, the former Hospital da Misericórdia, the Convent of S. Francisco and the former Rossio da Vila; to the north, the chapels of S. Gregório and Senhora da Piedade and the former Convento da Anunciada; to the west, the Castle Hill, the Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Conceição and the Convent of Christ; to the east, the medieval bridge, the old Moagens and Moinhos da Vila, the Convento de Santa Iria, the exit to the Church of Santa Maria do Olival.
