Tomar castle was built in the 12th century, in order to house the Templar Order, controlling the connections between Santarém and Coimbra. The castle enlargement works, along with the construction of Convent of Christ date back to the Manueline epoch and to the ruling period of D. João III. It has an irregular plan, according to local topography. The view over the city and river Nabão is splendid from the walls.
