Mata dos Sete Montes

Situated in the centre of Tomar next to one of the main avenues, the woods Mata Nacional dos Sete Montes with 39 ha is the main park of the city. There are 7 hills occupied by luxurious vegetation, where we can also find aromatic and medicinal herbs.

These woods lead to the Castle of Tomar and is also known as the Bush of the Convent of Christ, also used by the Order of Christ for isolation, but also the place where they planted gardens and apple trees that upheld the monastic community.

These lands belonged to the Knights Templar and the forest, encircled by walls, was founded by the Order of Christ. It was both a place of introspection and cultivation.

This is actually the lung of the city of Tomar, the ideal place for a walk  along its bucolic sites, such as the “Charolinha”, a temple of Romantic design. This forest is a dazzling romantic spot of Tomar and definitely a place to fall in love with!
