This building started in 1386 and took more then 100 years to build finishing in 1517. It is a good example of Gothic architecture in Portugal. Between the 1755 earthquake and Napoleonic troops in 1810 the complex fell into ruins. Some restoration started in 1840...More

This one of the most splendid religious buildings I have ever seen, on a par with Notre Dame de Chartres and Westminster Abbey. It boasts late Gothic architecture with a Manueline touch for some of the buildings, particularly the wonderful main cloisters. But above all,...More

This monastery is huge and looks lovely when it's lit up at night. The stain glass windows are beautiful. It is such a huge building to have in a small town.

Mosteiro da Batalha is one example of how big Portugal was during the renaissance era. The visit is divided in 4 ways, the main church, the tombs of kings, the monastery and claustres, and the unfinished part of the clausters. It is an important building...More

One of the best Monasteries I have ever seen. Much more beautiful than the famous Jerónimos Monastery in Lisbon. Huge and almost empty with amazing atmosphere. Late Gothic architecture, intermingled with the Manueline style makes it one of the most interesting sites. It is a...More

We stopped there for the evening so did a tour of the monastery. It is nice but not outstanding. We enjoyed the visit but it is similar to others. One unique item is the unfinished section.

As for many places in Portugal, you can follow them by checking the Unesco declared monuments, but Batalha, that is near Fatima, is simply amazing, we got a guided visit, and I can say it was not enough, its one the highlights of my visit...More

This Monastery is well worth the trip to Batalha. We spent a couple of hours just leisurely walking the site. I would recommend a audio tour or we used Rick Steves walking tour, so you better understand the rick history in this Monestary. A special...More
