A family experience that you won’t want to miss. All aboard!
The city of Entroncamento is located 22 minutes away from Tomar, in Tagus Valley, and it was born in the industrial age when camps were pitched for workers at a junction in the network (“entroncamento” means junction in Portuguese). It soon became a nexus point for freight and passenger trains heading north and east. The most famous figures of the period would join for a meal at the station’s restaurant before transferring.
