Tomar is a charming city, filled with ancient churches, narrow cobbled streets, and traditional white houses. It is located on the banks of the Nabão River in the Centro region, central Portugal, 135 km (84 mi) northeast of Lisbon. The city is set in a landscape of beautiful valleys, bending rivers, and gently rolling mountains swathed in pines and eucalyptus trees.
Tomar was established by the Knights Templar in 1160 on land granted by Afonso I, the first king of Portugal. The Convent of Christ and Castle complex, founded in the town in the 12th century by the Templars, was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983.
