With many beautiful altars, this church is worth a visit. It closes for lunch, be informed. The outside is very nice, in a beautiful main square of Tomar.

When in Tomar, you should take 15 minutes to view this site too. The portal is very nice, and inside there is some great art too.

The church is at the centre of Tomar, and so it's hard to miss! It is a bit sparse compared to Lisbon churches, but then again, it is not in Lisbon! Worth visiting for its connection to the templars.

We site saw the church prior to attending a wedding here. The history and care of this precious site is one to behold. There are certainly more elaborate throughout Europe but this one is special.

We enjoyed our visit to this smaller church. A great deal of Knights' Templar symbolism. The altar was also interesting.

The church was beautiful and quiet. It was nice to go inside and sit down and rest. In the main square off of the busy pedestrian street, you have many tourists but also locals in the side alcove. Beautiful example of a town church in...More

If you visit Tomar, and if churches are what you like, this place will deliver it to you. From Gothic age in excellent shape. Inside you'll discover lot of Christian art.
