Owner description: Located in the Gothic masterpiece of Santa Maria da Vitória Monastery, a special visit should be made to this chapel with its magnificent stained-glass windows, cloisters, Unfinished Chapel and the tombs of several Portuguese notables.

There are actually 2 locations to visit that would tell the whole story of this amazing monastery. One of course is the monastery itself. The flow of the sculpture and amazing flourish of details in stone is jaw dropping. The other is the place of the Battle of Aljubarrotta which resulted in the building of the monastery. It's just 2 miles away and clearly spotlights the tenacity of the Portuguese people for their independence. We would recommend stopping there first to few the audiovisual, walk the battlefield and view the monastery from afar in all of its glory. Wonderful experience!!!

We are very glad we lived in this small town so we can take a morning walk to visit this World Heritage. The decoration and the Hardin is wonderful.

The part that consists the church is not interesting! the cloisters has nice parts, but what does worth the visit in the imperfect/unfinished chapels, that are the last part of the visit! such an amazing place! its arquitecture is almost magic! such a mix of styles

You just can't stop looking at the remarkable architecture on this building!! It's gorgeous inside and out!! We happened to get there during Mass which was so solemn and beautiful. It's hard to believe that it was built so long ago and how they did that!!! Well worth a visit.
