Stopped here on the way back from Fatima to Lisbon, nice visit and even observed the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

It is rather easy to forget the time at Batalha Monastery. The whole history around it is very interesting making it a place not to be missed (make sure reading the history around it). The Gothic building took about 130 years to build and new...More
