The route has undergone some temporary changes due to building work being carried out. Follow the detour signs provided.
This route was designed with a concept different to the remaining routes, focussing on the history and culture of Leiria by visiting the most iconic locations in the city.
As walkers follow streets filled with history, with the castle always in sight, they’ll be able to take note of traces of the old Jewish Quarter and the marks left by architect Ernesto Korrodi, as well as a fantastic view of the city.
Travelling through time, from ancient times all the way up to the modern day, explore Leiria and the beauty that awaits.
