“The Monastery of Batalha” is no. 264 on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The monastery is large, tall and is set apart from the town almost like a fortress behind a wide moat, the moat actually being open space. The high spires and the rooftop vaults have, in addition to the monumental Gothic style, also large portions of the extravagant Manueline style.
