Cultural Set of Levada de Tomar

One of the city’s landmarks and located right at its entrance, along the Nabão River, the Levada de Tomar is an old mill area, made up of the Moinhos e Lagares d’El Rei (Mills and Olive Oil Press), built in the 12th and 13th centuries by the Templar Knights. The 1st charter of the village refers to the existence of mills and press wines, in the 12th century.

This is one of the great examples of the existing industrial heritage in the municipality, marked by a series of symbolic historical events for Tomar and an inseparable part of the history and identity of this territory. New times have given it new roles and it currently houses the museums of the Power Plant and of the Thomarenses Foundry, the Arts Factory project, and the Templar Interpretation Centre of Tomar.
