Sancha of Portugal (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈsɐ̃ʃɐ]) (2 february 1264-1273) was a Portuguese infanta, daughter of King Afonso III of Portugal and his second wife Beatrice of Castile.[1][2]

Sancha was born on February 2, 1264.[1] Little is known about her life. She travelled with her mother and sister Blanche to Seville[1] where she died in 1279.[2] In 1302, her remains were transferred to Portugal where she was buried at the Monastery of Alcobaça, Alcobaça.[1]
