Description

Portugal inspires locals and tourists alike. Travel through the eventful history of this country, which was not only at sea, and discover the secrets of one of the oldest countries in Europe.

Many years ago the Arab army conquered parts of the Iberian Peninsula, including Portugal. Most locals were too scared to defend themselves, which led to decades of foreign rule. Slowly but surely resistance was forming among the population, who no longer wanted to leave their country to others. The most influential religious order that fully supported the goal of liberating Portugal was the Knights Templar.

After its abolition and merciless persecution, it was re-established in Portugal under the name of the Order of the Knights of Christ. Let yourself be transported into the world of this religious-military order and find out what formative role it played in the history of the country. Listen to various theories about where the secret treasures of the Knights Templar might be located and set off on a quest for clues.

They stroll through the winding streets of Tomar with open eyes, always hoping to find some sign of the existence of the association. Learn how the Order influenced Portugal's development and defended the country against Moors and Spaniards. You will admire the famous Christ Knight's Castle, whose imposing layout reflects the power of the Order, and other fortresses in Almourol, Pombal and Dornes
