Convent of Christ
The castle had its foundation in 1160. In 1420, Infante D. Henrique, the Navigator, transformed the military house into a convent. At the beginning of the 16th century, D. Manuel I, King and Governor of the Order of Christ, enlarged to templar round about with a new construction which celebrated the Portuguese maritime discoveries. From 1531, with a reform of the Order of Christ, by D. John III, the grandiose convent of rebirth is built. The whole of these spaces, built over centuries, makes the Convent of Christ a grandiose monumental complex that deserves a classification of World Heritage by UNESCO.

Monastery of Batalha
The Monastery of Santa Maria da Vitoria, also called Monastery of Batalha is uncontestable one of the most beautiful works of Portuguese and European architecture. This exceptional architectural work resulted from a promise made by D. João I in gratitude for the victory of the Aljubarrota battle on August 14, 1385, which secured the throne and guaranteed the independence of Portugal. This National monument, it is part of the World Heritage List defined by UNESCO since 1983

Monastery of Alcobaça
The Monastery of Alcobaça is one of the first Cistercian monastic foundations in Portuguese territory. The Monastery of Alcobaça became the main house of this religious Order, thanks to a continuous policy of royal protection, initiated by the first king of Portugal, D. Afonso Henriques. The medieval buildings still preserved make the Monastery of Alcobaça a unique collection in the world, to which are added the later buildings, from the 16th to the 18th centuries, as an important testimony to the evolution of Portuguese architecture. It has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1983.
