A city and a municipality in Oeste Subregion, region Centro in Portugal. The city became notable after the first king decided to build a church to commemorate the Conquest of Santarem from the Moors in 1147. The church later evolved into the Monastery of Alcobaca.
This church and monastery were the first Gothic buildings in Portugal, founded in 1153. The main components of the complex are the royal tombs, the Chapel of St. Bernard, the royal Pantheon, the sacristy, and more.
Construction on this monastery began in 1386 and eventually wrapped up in 1517, spanning the reign of seven kings. It is a Dominican convent built in a Gothic style.
