The Dominican monastery of Batalha, a masterpiece of Gothic art, was built by King João I of Portugal to commemorate the victory of the Portuguese over the Castilians at the battle of Aljubarrota that took place in 1385. Its construction took over a century. One of the most striking features of the monastery is the funeral chapel that contains the tombs of King João I and his wife, Queen Philippa of Lancaster, as well as their sons, among whom is Henry the Navigator. The monastery is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site since 1983. The statue beside the monastery is that of Nuno Álvares Pereira, the mastermind of the Portuguese victory at Aljubarrota.
