Convento de Cristo

Highly recommended
On top of the mound which dominates the town, the 12C walls enclose the buildings of the Convent of Christ whose construction lasted from the 12C to the 17C. This is a veritable museum of Portuguese architecture where the Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline and Renaissance styles mingle. In the surrounding walls, you will pass through a garden of trimmed box before you reach the convent.
