Monastery of Alcobaça
Monastery of Batalha
Originally known and founded as the Monastery of Santa Maria da Vitória, the Monastery of Batalha, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983, is a proof of devotion and gratitude of D. João I for the victory in the Battle of Aljubarrota, which assured him the throne and guaranteed independence for Portugal.

Convent of Christ in Tomar
The Templar Castle and the Convent of Christ in Tomar is one of the largest monumental complexes of peninsular and European architectures, either in space as in time. Its very unique synthesis of both the old and new worlds of the Discoveries through the Manueline style justified the classification of this site, in 1983, as UNESCO World Heritage Site.
