Tomar, Portugal: the last Templar town

25 Jul 2016

About halfway between Porto and Lisbon, Tomar is a little hidden gem in Portugal.

On a hot September day, on our way to Lisbon from Porto, we stopped in Tomar to visit what my Portuguese husband announced was the last of the Templars' towns to be commissioned for construction. I had never heard of it.
