Tomar, the last stronghold of the Knights Templar, one of the most beautiful monasteries in Portugal and by far the prettiest window in the entire country. The town, located just 150 kilometers from Lisbon, also attracts hundreds of tourists every year for the Festa dos Tabuleiros one of the most beautiful traditional festivals. The mysticism that accompanies the fun fits perfectly with the dozens of myths that have grown up around the settlement. Some speak of hundreds of secret tunnels under the old town, others of great riches hidden by the Knights Templar. In addition, near Tomar is the supposedly haunted castle of Castelo de Almourol, where phantoms beg for forgiveness on St. John’s night.
