Hotel dos Templários water reflections at Nabão River

This area of Island of Mouchão Park is another beautiful spot of Tomar and the reflection of Hotel dos Templários and the vegetation around on the waters of Nabão River, will possibly delight your senses. This part of the river used to be navigable, I mean the Town Council of Tomar used to rent boats to tourists in this area who would paddle them upstream in the direction of Prado. By the way, Prado is a small place near Tomar where a paper factory was built in 1772 ordered by Marquês de Pombal, who was Head of the Portuguese Government at the time of the King D. José I (Joseph I of Portugal).
