The tombs of King Pedro I and Ines de Castro in the Monastery of Alcobaça

“Two masterpieces without equal in Europe. Those tombs are a whole compendium of art, of history and of the medieval mentality. We can only say to the reader: find information in good bibliography, go and take your time. It is amazing to see how so much can be said in so little space and with such high esthetical level.”

José Mattoso e Armindo de Sousa, in História de Portugal, Vol. II, Círculo de Leitores, 1993
