Batalha, a Portuguese architectural masterpiece

Batalha, a Portuguese architectural masterpiece

The monastery that owes its name to a battle is stupendous. As simple as that. It’s a pleasure for the eyes. A Gothic monument on a Gothic day. The clouds gathered to prepare the introduction of this Portuguese architectural masterpiece. We were amazed and continue to be every time we go visit, even if it’s just for admiring it from the outside. Continue reading
