The Templars have featured in countless books and films. Much of what has been written is fiction. But the true history of the Templars is more intriguing. The Knights Templar Order was destroyed by the King of France in 1312. But in Portugal it was renamed and lived on as the Order of Christ for centuries. Their headquarters, the magnificent Knights Templar Castle in Tomar, remains virtually intact. Now it is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Within a one hour radius of Tomar are wonderful abbeys, castles and other sites that link directly to the Knights Templar. The Knights Templar city of Tomar will be the base for our Templar tours. We will visit some of the most important and historic sites connected to the Templars. But it will be much more than visiting castles and abbeys. You will learn the impact of the Templars and the Christ Order on the history of the world.
The tours are designed for lovers of history, culture, and tradition.
You will visit some of the most important historical Knights Templar locations in the world. You will also visit Templar sites never normally visited by tourists.
There is no hard evidence to directly link the Knights Templar to the Free Masons. But often Knights Templar sites also contain symbols familiar to Free Masons. There is much interest by members of Masonic Orders, particularly Knights Templar Preceptories. Our tour guides will point out these symbols and links to Free Masonry.
We will ensure you get the opportunity to enjoy the marvellous food and wine of Portugal. There is much to see but there will be plenty of time to shop or relax as well. Our intention is that all our guests have an experience of a life-time.
We work in partnership with Caminhos Historia (History Trails). The company has great expertise in tourism and history. They have designed the tour along with us.
