This public square is located in front of Igreja de São João Baptista and has an interesting checkboard pattern. In the center is an imposing statue/monument of a Templar Knight. The church and the statue are visible from Castelo de Tomar with nothing blocking the view because of the square.

The Square is undergoing renovations and modernising ahead of the "Festival of the Trays" in 2023. The paving has been done, and the old church facade is almost done. Extensive works are taking place indoors.

A wonderful place to get all places in the town as well as feed some pigeons. A walking tour around has walking access only streets with items to purchase as well as places to eat and sit out of the hot sun.

Republic Square has a great medieval church, statue of a Templar grand master, and beautiful pavement tiles. But in the evening it's totally dead. There's two or three rather beaten up cafes on one side. Why don't they get together and fill the square with cafe tables?

Located only a few minutes walk from our "Casa dos Oficios" hotel (see separate review) in Old Town Tomar . It is not the largest square , but its floor is nicely patterned , with nice old buildings around it : The House of Common and the church of Saint Batista (closed for renovations) . Also the statue of Gualdim Pais and a couple of cafes to enjoy a break here .
Not to many people around (end of season/Covid 19 ???) , and a couple of Tuk-Tuks with their bored drivers waiting for clients .
The weather was great and the next evening , passing through the square - the cafes were full /

Well, come on, it's only a square. It depends on the day and the events to make it lively, or boring. Some nice restaurants here.

You have to know that the town of Tomar was born inside the walls of the “Convento de Cristo”, constructed under the orders of Gualdim de Pais, the fourth grand master of the Knights Templar in the late 12th century. Tomar can be seen as one of Portugal's historical jewels and, more significantly, as the last Templar town to be commissioned for construction. The city was especially important in the 15th century when it was a center of Portuguese overseas expansion under Henry the Navigator, the Grand Master of the Order of Christ, successor organization to the Templars in Portugal. Almost in the center you have the nice “Republic Square” with old houses, it also has the statue of “D. Gualdim Pais”, the house of common ando n the oposite site of the square you have the church of “São João Baptista”. Nice location to visit.

Republic square is just such a pristine piazza in the middle of the old town. The pavement, made of black and white squares set in diamond patterns, gives it a stunning beauty. The Church, Igreja Saint John the Baptist, is on side and the Town Hall on another. The town hall is beautiful, done in a 16th century Mannerist style. In front of the church there is a statue of a Templar Knight which is very interesting. Just a great place for photographs and appreciating Portugal's long and noble history.
