Travel back in time to the days of the Knights Templar with this 8-hour, guided tour. Join us as we visit some of the most important monuments associated with one of the most intriguing and enigmatic military orders the world has ever seen. The order of the Knights Templar was founded at the beginning of the 12th century for the protection of the Holy Sepulchre and of Christian pilgrims on their way to the Holy land.

We will pick you up at your hotel or accommodation in Lisbon and drive you to the Convent of Christ, originally a Templar stronghold that later became a Roman Catholic convent after this military order ceased to exist in the 14th century. Explore the convent and learn more about the history of the Templars.

Also see the magnificent castle of Almourol, a medieval castle atop an islet in the middle of the River Tagus. This castle was part of the defensive line of the Templars and acted as their stronghold during the Portuguese Reconquista.

Get the chance to enjoy queijinhos do ceu, a traditional Portuguese sweet, along the way. We will drop you off at your hotel or accommodation after the trip is over.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days are enough for Europe?

    You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent. 

    Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.
