If it wasn’t for the Templar/Order of Christ association, fewer people would visit it. The church doesn’t take long to visit. The tower was closed, so one can visit the church in about 10 minutes.

Steeped in history and deserving of the utmost respect.
Sadly the complete lack of interest from the attendant during our visit , she was glued to her mobile ‘phone , marred our enjoyment as we were keen to ask questions.

Also known as Santa Maria do Olival. This is a functioning parish church, so has Mass on Sundays. The bell tower dates from Templar times and the church is the burial place of Dom Gualdim Pais, the founder of the town.

I only saw the outside, but it was great. It is easy to get to using the first bridge from the train station. There are a few stairs and it is a bit of a walk. It is worth it.

One of the first things that stands out here is that you have to go DOWN a set of steps to enter the main area of the church - not something we have seen anywhere else. It's also a specific number (8) that you will also notice in the shape of various rooms and religious status located around the church.

Located a 10 minutes walk from Old Town Tomar , across the Nabao river (on the Ponte Nova) ., and very close to the municipal market of Tomar .
A simple , humble structure with a separate bell tower and some interesting tile works inside the church .
The burial site of Gualdim Pais , one of the grand masters Nights Templars .

It is such a quaint little town. If you were to remove the cars and electric lines you could easily imagine yourself back hundreds of years. The Church of Santa Maria has the same feeling. It is beautiful, but it is lived in. One fills blessed to be allowed a brief intrusion

Built as a burial grounds to the Grand Masters of the Order of Christ, it is a simple but beautiful church with a lot of history, surrounded by Olive Trees, and well maintained.

An impressive church which is steeped in history. Packed with interesting nooks and crannies. A great place to visit if you want to learn more about the Knights Templar.
