Portugal - Monastery of Alcobaça
The Monastery of Santa Maria d'Alcobaça, north of Lisbon, was founded in
the 12th century by King Alfonso I. Its size, the purity of its
architectural style, the beauty of the materials and the care with which
it was built make this a masterpiece of Cistercian Gothic art.
