Unlike most monuments in Tomar, Santa Maria dos Olivais Church is located in the left margin of Nabão river. It dates back to the 13th century, standing out as the pantheon of templar Order masters. This church is an example of the transition from Romanic to Gothic style. In its façade, you will see a big rose window over the four archivolts portico. Upon the rose window, lies the symbol of Knights Templar, the “Signum Salomonis”. Inside the church, you will observe the image of Senhora do Leite in the main chapel, painted by Diogo Pires-o-Velho. Nowadays, only the funereal monuments of Gualdim Pais, city founder, and of D. Gil Martins, the first master of the Order of Christ have remained.
