Batalha Monastery

You can view my images of the Monastery of Santa Maria da Vitória (Batalha Monastery) here

All images were taken on a Canon 1Dx Mk2 with either an EF 16-35mm f/4L or EF 70-200 f/2.8L Mk2 IS lens.

The monastery was built to thank the Virgin Mary for the Portuguese victory over the Castilians in the battle of Aljubarrota in 1385, fulfilling a promise of King John I of Portugal.
