Tomar Cheese

From the name of a small town 150 km northeast of Lisbon, known for its gastronomic specialties and well-known to tourists for its famous Manueline-style window in the Templar convent and Festa dos tabuleiros.

With a resemblance to Rabaçal cheese, Tomar is the smallest of Portuguese cheeses. It weighs barely 50-70 g, can be eaten fresh or aged, and is semi-soft. In Portugal it is known as "Queijinho de Tomar".
