Mosteiro Sao Vicente de Fora
Lisbon

WIKIPEDIA: "The original Monastery of São Vicente de Fora was founded around 1147 by the first Portuguese King, Afonso Henriques, for the Augustinian Order. The Monastery, built in Romanesque style outside the city walls, was one of the most important monastic foundations in mediaeval Portugal. It is dedicated to Saint Vincent of Saragossa, patron saint of Lisbon, whose relics where brought from the Algarve to Lisbon in the 12th century."
