Castle of Tomar in the distance from Corredoura

These three photos of the Castle of Tomar in the distance were shot from Corredoura, which is the old name of the street, now called Rua Serpa Pinto. Corredoura is probably the most important street in Tomar, located in the centre of the city, and you can always spot on top of the hills the castle of the Knights Templar, which was built by Gualdim Pais in 1160.
