Monastery of Alcobaca, Alcobaca
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
The first Gothic building and the largest Gothic religious structure in Portugal, Monastery of Alcobaca presents royal rooms, tombs, a blue-tiled kitchen, and colossally high interior spaces. Formed in the 12th century and developed until the 18th century, the monastery was home to generations of monks and is the final resting place to many kings and queens, including Afonso II and Urraca of Castile, Afonso III and Beatrice of Castile, and King Pedro I and his mistress. See the insides of the monastery--rising over 20 m (65 ft)--and visit the 18th-century kitchen, which reveals the Cistercian monks' astonishing mastery of hydraulic engineering. You can take a guided tour at the site. Put Monastery of Alcobaca on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Alcobaca trip builder.

Impressive monastery complex and beautiful architecture. UNESCO World Heritage.
The most beautiful place that I've been in Portugal. There you can find a stunning architecture, a wonderful church (so different that you usually see in Portugal) and one of the most detailed "main hall". It's a place to go in Portugal. Don't miss it.
