- The Batalha Monastery is one of the most beautiful European monuments in styles Flaming Gothic and Manueline. We will review the most salient aspects of one of the most beautiful works of Portuguese and European architecture.

The works lasted for more than 150 years, through various stages of construction. All this time justifies the existence of Gothic and Manueline solutions and a brief renaissance appointment (the magnificent Renaissance window of the Imperfect Chapels). Resulting in a large monastery complex currently features a church, two cloisters with attached dependencies and two Real Pantheons, the Founder's Chapel and the Unfinished Chapels. All sites visited by us will be conducted by Professor Vitor Manuel Adrião.
