Batalha Monastery, formally known as Mosteiro Santa Maria da Vitória, is a convent in Batalha, Portugal. It is a fabulous example of Gothic architecture in Portugal, and certainly a great source of national pride. The profusion of spires, gables, buttresses and pinnacles are a remarkable sight against the backdrop of cerulean sky. The Dominican convent was built in honor of the Virgin Mary for her help in the Portuguese battle against the Castilians.
