"The feeling you get from being in a place cannot be replicated by photographs seen or by words read nor spoken."
The Convento de Cristo sits on a hill high above Tomar, the Knight's Templar capital of the world. It took five centuries to build, was influenced by Moorish, Manuelin, and gothic architecture and is one of my favorite places to go in Portugal. This place gives an accurate feeling of Old World Europe that you can't get unless you visit.
