Convent of Christ's Window

“This window in Portuguese is known as Janela do Capítulo and it shows most of the motifs related to the maritime discoveries of the Portuguese, centuries ago. The Chapter Window is an amazing elaborated masterwork of the Manueline architecture with themes like corals of the beaches the navigators landed, ropes from their caravels, and the vegetation they found in distant strange lands.” (by http://city-of-tomar.com) This was made by Diogo de Arruda in 1510-1513.
