This convent is a must to visit, and you should consider at least half a day to do so. Very interesting building. The memory card of your camera will be full in no time visiting the monastery and the church.

Give yourself at least 2 hours to meander and enjoy everything the convent and castle have to offer. We went around 2 when most of the tourists had left the convent. The Gothic cloister was nice but the Round Church - wow...beautiful.

A highlight of our trip to Portugal. Very unusual church and monastery, and fascinating to see the rooms of the monks, the dining hall, and so many other things, like their ingenious heating system. The architecture of the building itself is exquisite. The city of...More

The Convent is incredible - that is all that I can say. I have visited several times, and each time I learn more.

In order to see as much as possible of this extraordinary architectural and historical jewel you should allow a minimum of two hours. Just when you think you have explored every open room...wait! There is still more to see and marvel at. Don't be afraid...More

This is a huge complex of buildings, started from the Templars and added to consecutively by so many Kings. The church is gorgeous and absolutely unique in its architecture. So many of the buildings around the church, part of the monastery, survived and they are...More

We hired a private car service to see the Batalha Monastery, the Alcobaca Monastery and the Convent of Christ in Tomar -- all in one day. The three places are all spectacular. The Convent of Christ is our third stop. The courtyard is a wonder....More

For those of us who are fascinated by the intentionally distorted story of the Templar’s, or as they will come to be called, Knights of Christ, in Portugal, this is Mecca. It turns out the entire Templar tale is as much Portuguese as French. This...More
