“Stunning woodcarvings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

You will find the entrance gate in at the Largo 1o de Decembro, just across the exit of the Ribeiro-Batalha cable-car. Interesting interior entirely decorated with wood carvings.

“Amazing...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

It's hidden from the tourists, but really worth to find it and see all the golden walls inside the church.

“A Hidden Little Treasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

Seek this out, it is well worth it. Near the exit of the Funicular on the way to the Cathedral, but tucked away through an archway across a small square beside the police station. Check opening times.

As said by others the outside is dull, but the inside is magnificent. A peaceful little hideaway for quiet reflection.

Also as said before the photo at the head of this attraction of the large white circular building is the monastery on the other side of the river and not Santa Clara Church!

“On the way to the wall, hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

We found this church as we were going to the fortification wall from Batalha square. Church is located at inner yard. Door knob is interesting brass hand. Inside of the church is amazing. On a cloudy moment a darkish, but when sun shines, church shows its blossom.
