Leiria District travel guide

4.4
Landmarks · Sacred & Religious Sites · Beaches
Although most visitors flock to its pleasant Atlantic coastline, Leiria District also features a hilly countryside peppered with quiet towns, luxuriant vineyards, and thick oak forests. The district's namesake capital city, situated at the confluence of two major rivers, attracts history and architecture buffs with its hilltop castle and majestic Romanesque cathedral. If you wish to combine sightseeing with a few active pursuits, use the district capital as your base and divide your time among the region's beaches and fishing villages, which preserve their traditional way of life and happily evade the worst aspects of commercial tourism.
