Information

Today we are facing an entertaining stage in which we will alternate a multitude of landscapes and urban areas with rural areas. From the moment we leave Golegã there will be plenty of roads and asphalted stretches, on which we will have to take all the necessary precautions. Although again the stage is presented with a somewhat high mileage, we will have our well-deserved reward when we reach Tomar, historic city of the Templars.

Map

We start our way from the church square of Golegã, to go to the small village of São Caetano, and from here, we will pass in front of the pilgrims’ hostel and we will continue towards Quinta da Cardiga, towards Tomar. After so many kilometres of company, we say goodbye to the Tagus River.

Once we have passed through Vila Nova da Barquinha, we should continue towards Atalaia, where we can make a stop on the way to visit its main church, declared a National Monument.

After resting for a while, we start walking again, this time heading towards Grou, to later reach Asseiceira. From Asseiceira we have the last push to get to Tomar. We will follow a succession of detours marked along the way to avoid the national road and after passing the Alto do Piolinho, we will walk carefully along the shoulder of the national road N-110 until we enter Tomar.

To consider

In a clearing in the forest, halfway between Golegã and the Templar village of Tomar, we will come across a pair of blue arrows to Fátima, now pointing west. We must not be confused, for our path continues in the opposite direction.
