The Monks Park is located in the Nun’s Estate in Alcobaça and it is built mainly as an Environmental and Cultural Park, offering visitors unique experiences through a range of activities and events, aiming to recreate the lives of the monks of the Order of Cistercians.

The Nun’s Estate is one of the most clearly defined areas of monastic presence, as it was here that the monks initially settled – and for 22 years – a small community gathered to prepare the foundation and construction of the Alcobaça Monastery, in the same place it is built on today, and in which, at the time, they secured, through innovative farming techniques, all the food that they required for the Order.
