Getting around Batalha
Batalha is an extremely small Portuguese village, to be visited only on foot.
If you arrive in the city by bus, the station is just a few minutes’ walk away.
It is difficult to visit the city for more than a day: the Monastery (although truly wonderful) is by and large the only place that attracts visitors.
For this, it will be very unlikely to get around Batalha by public transport. Even less by car.
Only for those interested, there is a bus service, limited to only three lines, which operates in the city.
