The Templar Castle and the Convent of the Knights of Christ in Tomar is a unique monument in the history of the western world.
Quite probably it was built on a site of Roman worship, as is borne out by the stone taken from the sacrificial altar to the ''Genio Municipi.
This vast monument illustrates seven centuries of Portugal's history and contains important mementos of decisive moments.
Thank you Sandy for the nice card and beautiful stamps.
