O Mosteiro de Santa Maria de Alcobaça, também conhecido como Real Abadia de Santa Maria de Alcobaça ou mais simplesmente como Mosteiro de Alcobaça, é a primeira obra plenamente gótica erguida em solo português.
Foi começado em 1178 pelos monges de Cister. Está classificado como Património da Humanidade pela UNESCO e como Monumento Nacional, desde 1910

Le monastère de Santa Maria d'Alcobaça, au nord de Lisbonne, Portugal, est fondé au xiie siècle par le roi Alphonse Ier. Par l'ampleur de ses dimensions, la clarté du parti architectural, la beauté du matériau et le soin apporté à l'exécution, il est considéré comme un chef-d'œuvre de l'art gothique cistercien. Il est inscrit au patrimoine mondial de l’humanité de l’UNESCO depuis 1989. Il est déclaré en juillet 2007 comme une des sept merveilles du Portugal.
Le roi Dom Alfonso Henriques, en mars 1147, prend la ville de Santarém aux Maures. Pour marquer cette victoire, il promet de construire une demeure magnifique pour l’ordre des cisterciens. Il fallut 76 ans pour finir l’ouvrage. Et 60 ans plus tard, le roi Dinis fit construire le cloître principal et ce ne fut qu’en 1252 que le monastère fut inauguré. En 1269, les moines furent les premiers à donner des cours publics. Ils produisirent également la première histoire du Portugal. La façade fut rénovée au xviiie siècle.

En 1810, les envahisseurs français pillèrent l'abbaye. Le peu de richesse qui subsista à cet assaut fut dérobé en 1834 dans un soulèvement anticlérical qui vit la disparition des ordres religieux au Portugal.

Alcobaça is known for its principal attraction, the Abbey of Santa Maria. Founded in 1153 to commemorate a victory against the Moors, it was finally completed in 1223. It is now Portugal's largest church, and one of its outstanding architectural monuments.

It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and its excellent state of preservation makes it the finest example of Cistercian architecture in Europe (it is also the continent's largest building of the Cistercian order).

Some years ago we visited this magnificent monastery and admired the tombs of Inês de Castro and Dom Pedro. We visited the " Quinta das Lágrimas" in Coimbra, too. Both have been very impressive experiences.
Many thanks for sharing this beautifol image!
Have a nice weekend!
