The Batalha Monastery, a stunning example of filigree stone work and beautiful design, is, for the main part, Gothic in style. Ornate archways lead to magical chambers and chapels and its exterior is a veritable throng of sculptures of saints and other important characters. However, its piece-de-resistance, the Royal Cloister, displays much evidence of the beginnings of Manueline style in its nautical carvings. More exceptional examples of Manueline masonry can be found in the seven chapels which lie unfinished, interestingly because the masons in question were taken by Manuel I to Belém to start work on the magnificent its Mosteiro dos Jerónimos
