Convent of Christ

In Tomar, Portugal, the Convent of Christ is a former Roman Catholic convent. The Knights of the Order of Christ were originally a 12th-century Templar stronghold, but then, when the order was dissolved in the 14th century, the Portuguese branch of the order was turned into the Knights of the Order of Christ, which supported Portugal’s maritime discoveries of the 15th century.
