7 seater deluxe Mercedes Viano Ambiente
We do focus this tour in the Unesco classified sites that can be reached in a day and are relatively close to each other. All of them previous monasteries of different religious orders.
Drive to Tomar, almost in the geographical center of Portugal where we visit the Christ Convent, former seat of the Templar Order in Portugal, later converted into Order of Christ. Then we will proceed west to visit Batalha late gothic monastery intimately related with the golden age of the portuguese. We continue our tour moving to Alcobaça where the world best preserved Cister Abbey was built late 12th century. Return to Lisbon and if time still allows we will stop at Óbidos medieval walled town.

»Alcobaça monastery, world best preserved monastery from cister order. Stage of Inês/Pedro lover story.
