Description

Founded by D. Gualdim Pais, Convento de Cristo was the headquarters of the Templar Order in Portugal. Together with the Castle, they represent the culmination of the Order under the direction of Grandmaster Gualdim Pais.

The Convent of Christ (Portuguese: Convento de Cristo/Mosteiro de Cristo) is a former Roman Catholic convent in Tomar, Portugal. Originally a 12th-century Templar stronghold, when the order was dissolved in the 14th century the Portuguese branch was turned into the Knights of the Order of Christ, that later supported Portugal's maritime discoveries of the 15th century. The convent and castle complex is a historic and cultural monument and was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983.
