The Castle of the Knights Templar in the skies of Tomar

If you visit the City of Tomar, you will notice that in most areas of the town you can see the Castle of Tomar in the distance. So if you slightly look up to the skies of my home town, you can’t avoid this medieval fortification built by Gualdim Pais, the founder of this historical city and the Master of the Order of the Temple. In this case these photos were shot from Rua Serpa Pinto, the street also known as Corredoura.
