Batalha, Portugal

If you visit Batalha you're there for the monastery, Mosteiro de Santa María de Victória, Portugal's second most visited monument.

Commissioned in 1385 after the battle of Aljubarrota where the Portuguese beat the Castilian forces in spite of being vastly outnumbered and housing the tombs of King João I (the founder), his son Henry 'the Navigator' and Dom Duarte, the monastery holds a very important place in Portuguese history and culture.

Batalha is also a perfect base to visit all of Estremadura's other monuments especially the Convento de Cristo in Tomar and the monastery of Alcobaça (you can get a joint ticket for all three, on sale at any of them). Medieval Óbidos is also within easy reach.

But it's certainly not all about the 'old stones'! The unique landscape of Parque Natural de las Sierras de Aire y Candeeiros is just nearby and the surf-washed Atlantic coast is just 20km away.Mosteiro de Santa María de Victória.
