Édifié pour commémorer la victoire des Portugais sur les Castillans à la bataille d'Aljubarrota en 1385, le monastère des dominicains de Batalha fut pendant deux siècles le grand chantier de la monarchie portugaise où se développa un style gothique national original, profondément influencé par l'art manuélin, comme le montre le cloître royal, véritable chef-d'oeuvre.

The Monastery of the Dominicans of Batalha was built to commemorate the victory of the Portuguese over the Castilians at the battle of Aljubarrota in 1385. It was to be the Portuguese monarchy's main building project for the next two centuries. Here a highly original, national Gothic style evolved, profoundly influenced by Manueline art, as demonstrated by its masterpiece, the Royal Cloister.
