This monastery was started on the late 1300s bed finished on the 1500s . Beautiful architecture and very well preserved buildings. A UNESCO heritage site.

Visited on a tour of Fatima. Very imposing structure. Makes you wonder how these are built in ancient times when all they have is man power,no machine, no cranes. Very impressive interior and exterior. Takes 10-15 mins just to walk around the whole ground.

Unesco protected monastery monument. Beautiful new gothic style and huge size, surrounded by nice open square. Main cathedral entrance impressive by extremely tall pillars and detailed architecture. More than 250years and 6 kings in the making ( and still not completely built according to history)...More

Batalha Monastery stands apart in its own grandeur. Saw pictures before, but standing in front of it is really remarkable. Go around as it is truly magnificent. Look up at the ornament above the main entrance. Do NOT miss to visit the cloisters as well.

One of the most impressive monasteries we've seen on our trip to Portugal. The detail in the stone work at certain places was simply incredible. The church is free to visit, but to make it worth your while I recommend the 6£ entry fee to...More

After Fatima our next stop was the Batalha Monastery with its gothic architecture. This place is pretty big and impressive – you can easily walk around since there was not too much people. We had about 1 hour or so to visit with our tour...More

An absolute must visit attraction! Really useful leaflet/guide for €1, and just €6 to visit, (half price for kids/OAPs). So much to see, and such interesting history. A great place to spend a couple of hours......don't miss this place!!!

If we buy the combi ticket for the 3 places, can we visit each place on different dates, ie would the same ticket be valid to visit each place on separate different dates? We do not intend to visit the three of them together.
