Things to do in Tomar, Portugal

There are plenty of things to do in Tomar, from sightseeing to outdoor activities. The countryside that surrounds is filled with vineyards, orchards and forests and is ideal for hiking or horse riding.

The Castle of Almourol, another important Templar building, is located 20km outside of Tomar on a little rocky island on the Tagus River.

Other fascinating buildings include Church of Santa Maria do Olival, which served as a burial place for Templar Knights, the mediaeval Synagogue of Tomar and the Chapel of Our Lady of the Conception.

Unforgettable Tomar

5 of 5
Tomar was amazing. A magical place and the apartment was fantastic. Staying in such a beautiful, comfortable, well equipped apartment made the whole holiday perfect. It had everything needed and more. The beds were especially good. Luxurious. I would love to go back and stay again soon.

Lovely house

5 of 5
Our stay here was a delight. Leonor and her sons greeted us at the house and showed us around. She even made the biggest pastel de nata in the world to welcome us. During our stay all queries were answered promptly. The house has a large open plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen. It has a double bedroom, bathroom and a twin bedroom with en suite (and Jacuzzi). It is set back from the quiet country road and has plenty of parking space on the drive. Leonor provides a well-stocked honesty bar and enough kitchen equipment to cater for a wedding. We stayed in Feb/Mar, when the weather was not at its best, but the large open fire kept us warm enough. If you fancy a walk there is a restaurant about half an hour's walk away in the village. A meal there cost us 7 Euros a head, but be warned. The portions are huge, so the walk back may take longer. I would strongly recommend a car, as it is situated in a rural area, though Tomar is only 15 minutes away. Also not a place if you want to visit night clubs all week. But if you want to enjoy rural Portugal at its best, this house is a great choice. All in all, I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to stay in the area.
