The Batalha term, which means battle, evokes one of the rare hours of glory of the history of the country. King Jean 1st indeed founded the monastery Santa Maria da Vitória after the battle of Aljubarrota into 1385 where Portugal once more maintained its sovereignty in front of the Spaniards. This gigantic building required more than 200 years of construction.
