#zolfdiscover: Leiria

Let's go to another #zolfdiscover? This time we head to the coastal center to introduce you to a young, urban, cultural, cosmopolitan city: Leiria!

que visitar?

leiria castle

A monumental symbol of history, Leiria Castle recalls the medieval origins of the city. There were several kings and queens who were dazzled by the fantastic landscape that can be seen from the top of the hill and now it's your turn to visit this important monument.

lis river

Born in Fontes and with its mouth in Vieira Beach, the river Lis is part of Leiria's identity. A landmark of natural beauty that invites you to take a walk along the shore and which is an obligatory stop for anyone visiting the city.

Mira de Aire Caves

Just over 35km from the city center are the largest caves in Portugal. The Mira de Aire Caves are an authentic underground cathedral and were voted one of the seven natural wonders of Portugal. Don't you think there's enough reason to visit them?


Where to eat?

For those looking for refinement and high quality food, Casa da Nora Restaurant is a great bet. Located on the outskirts of Leiria and housed in an old oil mill, it combines traditional Portuguese cuisine with fusion dishes.
