We visited Alcobaca last week and it was fantastic. You just need two or three days to see Alcobaca because it's a small city. Alcobaca doesn't have so many famous places but there are some very good restaurants and the beautiful monastry and you can do amazing walks in the streets because Alcobaca is a safe city. The best time to visit is the Spring because at this time of year it is neither too cold nor too hot and to visit we need to walk a lot so it shouldn't be hot. The traditional food is custard tarts, convent sweets, Alocobaca apples and most traditional drink is ginger and the best restaurant is Antonio Padeiro.

The monastery of Alcobaça is very impressive and worth a visit. In the first part of July there were almost no other tourist around, very quiet We took a ticket to vist this one, Tomar and Bathala monastery, for a very good price you can visit these 3 world heritage sites. You have a year time to visit these places with the ticket. The area around the town is very nice to.

I loved this place, even more than its more frequently visited neighbor, the Batalha Monastery. It's majestic, beautiful and has impressive acoustics. Don't must it!

Large monastery dominates the square, with plenty of local cafes opposite. This is in the old part.
Supermarkets and outlets on outskirts.

We decided to visit Alcobaca during our stay in Leiria and I was so glad we did. The town is delightful, with just enough to see and do for a single day. Everything is very compact (except, perhaps for the Wine Museum - closer to a 20 minute walk out of the town).

One of the best day visits I've had while staying in Portugal.

Just like the title says, this city has frozen in time. There are a lot of beautiful sights but there's also quite a lot of degradation unfortunately

The story of King Pedro and his love, Inez is fascinating. Seeing their tombs facing each other in anticipation of Judgment Day is awe-inspiring. Add to it the history of the church, and it becomes a must visit site

lovely city in the central part of Portugal. Cozy, cheap and lots of history. From there you can easily access either the see (Nazaré) or the interior.

Eventually, we gave up. We found what we hoped was free parking. We needed to find a restroom and it was not easy. We were most thankful to find the library and use their facilities. It is an attractive town and we were pleased to find an elevator that eliminated a bit of a climb to the old town. We did eat lunch here and then moved on to our next stop without trying to find the monastery.
