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

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!!!
