Bibendum
The work of architect Diogo de Arruda between 1510 and 1513, this is the most striking example of the Manueline style anywhere in Portugal. From the roots of a cork-oak, supported by the bust of a captain, springs forth a twisting decoration that climbs up to the left and right in a riot of foliate and marine detail. Crowning it all are the emblems of Manuel I and the Cross of the Order of Christ. Other decorative motifs represent orders of chivalry.

    Pros

    pour les amoureux de la marche, des belles pierres. La visite intérieure est payante, et heureusement la cour et les jardins sont gratuits. Il leur faudrait recruter plus pour entretenir le jardin un peu en friche, mais agréable par l'ombre procurée en temps de chaleur. Le centre de la ville de TOMAR est agréable, et le parc verdoyant, ombragé avec des rivières et bassins peuplés de poissons, cygnes et canards avec leurs petits.
