Batalha Travel Guide: 111 reviews and 447 photos

Anothe sleepy little Portuguese town a few miles north-east of Alcobaca is the home for what is regarded as the masterpiece of Portuguese Gothic architecture - the Dominican Abbey of Santa Maria da Vitoria - and has earned itself UNESCO world monument status.

And with the main entrance facing west, time it right and you will see the portal and main tower picked out beautifully by the setting sun.
