Welcome to Leiria


Dom Afonso III convened a cortes (Portugal’s early parliament) here in 1254; Dom Dinis established his main residence in the castle in the 14th century; and in 1411 the town’s sizeable Jewish community built Portugal’s first paper mill. Modern-day Leiria has a pleasant, low-key urban buzz and makes a convenient base for visiting nearby sights, including Alcobaça, Batalha, Fátima and the Pinhal de Leiria – all easily accessible by bus.
