Festa Templaria, Tomar

Every year, Tomar in Portugal hosts the Festa Templária; the Knights Templar Festival. This is a three-day event and includes the spectacular Parade of Knights.

Hundreds of local people dressed as Knights Templar parade through the streets in a torch-lit parade. Led by mounted knights on horseback it is a truly amazing sight.

The Festa Templária runs for three days early in July. This video shows what can be expected at the festival. A date for the diary later this year perhaps? Check it out online and look out for us there!
