The town of Batalha is home to the Monastery of the Dominicans of Batalha which was built to commemorate the victory of the Portuguese over the Castilians at the battle of Aljubarrota in 1385. It took two centuries to complete. We happened across the Monastery on our drive up the coast, I’m glad we decided to stop, it was a pretty awesome site.
