Batalha Monastery, Portugal (UNESCO)

A wonderful surprise sent by Ursula and Georg Alfter from their trip to Portugal.
Work on Batalha Monastery, a Dominican convent, began in 1386 and lasted until 1517. It commemorates the battle of Aljubarotta in 1385.
In 1983 it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
