Shopkeepers in Tomar work hard to acquire premises on the town's main shopping thoroughfare, Rua Serpa Pinto, an avenue known locally as Corre Doura, which refers to a medieval horse race that used to take place along this street in the 12th century. You'll find lots of outlets for folkloric goods, pottery, copperware, and wrought iron. One of the best is Artlandica, Pousada de Beja, São Francisco, Várzea Grande (tel. 24/932-33-55).
