Leaving Tomar, we’ll head on to Constância, where Luís de Camões – the most famous Portuguese poet – is said to have lived. There, enjoy the magnificent views of the onfluence of Zêzere and Tejo rivers.

Take a small boat ride in the Tagus river calm waters up to the unique Almourol Castle island, where you’ll have some more free time to explore.
