The Monastery of Alcobaca is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage. If you vsit this beautiful place is easy to understand why the monastery is on the list.
Its size, its architectural style, the beauty of the materials and the care with which it was built make this a masterpiece of Cistercian Gothic art.
The Monastery of Santa Maria d'Alcobaça was founded in the 12th century by King Alfonso I.
This is an oldie. It was catch with our old FinePix S5000 but i must say that i'm pleased with the quality.

splendida la definizione e lo sharp che mettono in risalto la pregevole architettura della chiesa.
La luce rende bene i colori,

I like the chosen visual angle, that it offers us a slight diagonal perspective of the splendid architecture of the monastery, in a perfectly illuminated image.
The shades and the natural colors add a great aesthetic interest to your composition.
A beautiful work.

il Portogallo dev'essere una terra meravigliosa ed affascinante, e quanto prima mi ripropongo di visitare! La facciata di questa chiesa è davvero splendida, i fregi sono meravigliosi, perfettamente godibili grazie anche alla luce perfetta ed ai colori bellissimi. Complimenti.

Splendid image, a great historic structure and there is a good balance of light between the main subject and the sky area. It's well composed revealing the grandeur of this historic Monastery so superb with lot of intricate details, texture and rich colors tones. The deep blue sky creates a pleasing contrast and lovely inclusion of human activity in the foreground which further adds interest and focal to this shot. A delightful and serene capture! my friend. Well done. Congrats.

Hi dear Kik
Another wonderful and fantastic South-European image.
So vivid prime color and much sun light, those I right now miss very much. Sharp and clear image in the details as usual should be highly appreciated. Thank you for your sharing with your best work and have a good day!

This is a beautiful shot of the monastary, the architecture is beautiful and is illuminated by the beautiful warm light. Great POV and composition. I love the inclusion of the tree branches to adds some natural element and it frame the photo very nicely. The presence of the few people also really adds sense of scale and activities. Including the couple of workers resting in the shade.
