Portugal Alcobaca4 The city

(1 vote)

Alcobaça is a city in Centro Portugal. The city grew along the valleys of the rivers Alcoa and Baça, from which it derives its name. The city has a population of 15,800 inhabitants.
The city of Alcobaça became notable after the first king of Portugal, Afonso Henriques, decided to build a church to commemorate the Conquest of Santarém from the Moors in 1147. The church later evolved into the Monastery of Alcobaça, one of the most magnificent gothic monuments in the country. In the church are the tombs of Pedro I of Portugal and his murdered mistress Inês de Castro. Over the centuries this monastery played an important role in shaping Portuguese culture
