Guimaraes to Evora - best town to stay in for one night

We are travelling from Guimaraes to Evora by rental car and wondered what the best town is to break the journey and spend a night in and maybe the best route to take.

Would welcome suggestions.

Best depends on your interests... if you go inland it can be somewhere between Guarda and Castelo Branco, by the Estrela mountain. If you go closer to the coast it can be somewhere between Coimbra and Tomar.

Tomar is a good idea. Very nice town and you may visit the Convent of Christ!

I vote for Tomar. We loved Convento do Cristo and the town of Tomar.
