Alcobaca is a city on the coast in Portugal where the first King, Afonso Henriques, decided to build a cathedral for the Order of the Cistercians to celebrate the conquest of the Moors in 1147. The church later evolved into the tremendous Gothic Monastery of Alcobaca, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The local economy is based on growing fruit and ceramics production, both begun by the monks in the 12th century. Alcobacan majolica is very distinctive and uses blues and reds in floral patterns and is usually signed Alcobaca on the bottom.
