I love so much Batalha monastery, that I decided to get married there, many, many years ago. However, as the years pass, is dramatic the degradation of the monument, caused by the pollution of cars.
Allow me a very personal comparison:
Three small details make the two pictures in Batalha combined below a little bit different. Will you find them ?
1 - At left the monastery was absolutely secondary. At right it gets all the attention
2 - Left, the bride waits for her husband to take the picture. Right, she is somewhere home, waiting for her husband to post this text.
3 - Left, the stone evidences its 600 years in place. Right, 36 years of pollution have been added.
Well, I'm not the only one worrying, and they started to build a protection by the road. Good!
