Nabão River from the Old Bridge of Tomar

When a visitor enters the City of Tomar he or she will encounter a quiet river surrounded by beautiful parks, as you can see in these photos below. This is Nabão River or Rio Nabão as the Portuguese call it. The Romans named this river in Tomar as Nabanus, but there was a time in the middle ages that the river took the name of the town in archaic Portuguese. So Nabão River or Nabanus River was also known as Thomar River.
