Europe-Portugal

Leiria District

Welcome to Leiria District

The district of Leiria is located inland from the coast and is home to a wide variety of unique towns and attractions, all offering different scenery, monuments and customs. The charming fishing town of Peniche is situated on the coast and is a popular deep sea-fishing destination where you can also enjoy excellent seafood restaurants and regular ferry trips to the Berlenga Islands – a beautiful natural reserve surrounded by transparent waters. Nazaré is another picturesque fishing village in the district and is popular for its spectacular, sandy beach on which fishermen still stretch out their nets. After visiting Leiria’s age-old castle, medieval Praça Rodrigues Lobo and Renaissance cathedral, make your way to the Batalha Monastery – a true masterpiece of Gothic architecture in the country. Also be sure to see the grandiose monastery in Alcobaça, a magnificent, medieval structure including a 12th Century church. The popular city of Caldas da Rainha is famous for its traditional (and somewhat humorous) ceramics and crafts, while the city of Marinha Grande is renowned for being the largest glass manufacturer in Portugal. Discover Óbidos, an enchanting, whitewashed town surrounded by 14th Century castle walls.
