The Light Shines Through History

Alcobaca Monastery

The Monastery of Batalha was built in 1385, is One of the UNESCO  world heritage Site, a Dominican convent in the civil parish of Batalha, central region of Portugal. 
It is one of the best and original examples of Late Gothic architecture in the world.

Encountering this church was a very precious experience I had with Portugal.
Thanks again, Belita  :)
