“My father was born in Tomar. He really likes to talk to me about the history of Tomar.

When I went to Tomar, my father took us to the Convent of Christ. It was a very beautiful moment. My parents showed us the famous Manueline window. We also walked through the historic streets and famous churches that were part of the history of the Templars.

At the end of the day we went for ice cream and my father ate a traditional sweet from Tomar, the Cozinhada.”
