The Social dinner will take place on Thursday 28th May, 2020 (Location to be announced later).
The history of the town of Alcobaça and its modern-day existence are indissociably linked to the almost seven century-long presence of the Cistercian Order in the town. The Order built one of the largest Cistercian monasteries in the world here at the confluence of the rivers Alcoa and Baça, after being granted a site by King Afonso Henriques.
