This huge monastery houses the tombs of many Portuguese kings and queens. The construction was so ambitious that it never ended, being known by its Imperfect Chapels which were never concluded! Really beautiful!

I visited Batalha in February. Batalha(battle) is a small town near Lisbon with total population 15.000 inhabitants. The most outstanding thing for me was Batalha Monastery or Mosteiro da Batalha. It is one of the best and original examples of Late Gothic architecture in Portugal, intermingled with the Manueline style.The monastery was built to thank the Virgin Mary for the... More

João I and his general Nuno Alvares Pereira. For those who like to know more about fighting, politics and... More

If the exterior was cleaned down it would be one of Europe's most beautiful structures. As is the interior church is of great beauty & the visitor must not forget the ex monastic cloisters which need payment for - they are superb.

We were very pleasantly surprised at the beautiful buildings in Portugal and this was one of the most impressive. You can visit the church for free but there is a minimal charge to visit the monastery. It is worth the ticket just to see the stunningly beautiful Founders Chapel with the tombs of King Joas 1, his Queen Philippe and... More
