Portugal Mosteiro da Batalha7

(0 votes)


The Monastery of Santa Maria da Vitória, today known as the Monastery of Batalha, was built as a result of the promise made on the battlefield, by King João I to the Virgin Mary, under the pressure of all that was at stake, to build a monastery if victory were his.
The importance of the building of the monastery did not end with the fulfillment of that promise; from the very beginning it also embodied the consecration of King João I as King of Portugal, the symbolic and real personification of a new dynasty, as expressed and legitimised by divine will.
