The green tourist train in Tomar

The small tourist green train is a popular attraction in the City of Tomar. It was launched in the year 2000 which make it more than a decade old. The organization that decided to carry out this tourist project was the Commercial and Industrial Association of Tomar, called ACITOFEBA, with the support of the Town Council of Tomar. This train which you can see below at Rua Marquês de Pombal and Rua Serpa Pinto, has two established itineraries. One of them takes tourists for a ride around the city and the other goes to the Convent of Christ (Convento de Cristo) and Pegões Aqueduct (Aqueduto dos Pegões).
