Culture and History tour in Alcobaca, Batalha, Obidos
Obidos: This wonderful city of Portuguese kings traditionally gave their brides as a dowry, so Obidos anciently considered the city of the Portuguese Queens. It is elegant and cozy, romantic and so small that it looks more like an old box with cute trinkets than the city-fortress. Try here the famous liqueur "Ginja", served in chocolate cups is a beyond praise !, visit the annual "Festival of Chocolate" and celebration "of the Middle Ages."
We propose 2 of Portugal’s most important monuments classified as world Heritage sites by UNESCO – the Monastery of Alcobaça, and the Monastery of Batalha. Linked to key episodes in Portuguese history, these exquisite monuments combine various architectural styles. The oldest, the Alcobaca Monastery was founded by Portugal’s first king, and pertained to the Order of Cistercians, which played an essential role in Portugal’s agricultural and cultural development.
The Batalha Monastery - a masterpiece of late Gothic architecture - pays testimony to affirmation of Portuguese independence against the powerful Kingdom of Castille.
