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!!!
