It quickly became one of the most important monastic establishments in Portugal, housing the pantheon of the newly established royal house of Aviz." "Built in European Late Gothic style, and strongly influenced by contemporary Mediterranean architecture, it contains fine examples of the flamboyant decorations of the period and the elegant, slender lines - clear to see in the Afonso V Cloister - that preceded the formal austerity of the mid-fifteenth century and the new forms of the Renaissance. These are not much in evidence here, since, after King Manuel's death, his successors lost interest in the building."" ;
