We challenge you to wander around Leiria’s old city. This beautiful area has been brought back to life with new shops and new cultural offers, such as festivals and literary events.
Through streets and alleyways, you can retrace the steps of Father Amaro and Amélia, the main characters in the famous novel by Eça de Queirós, or lose yourself while taking in the rich architectural elements of this area. From Praça Rodrigues Lobo all the way up to the castle, there are endless possible routes. Largo Cândido dos Reis (formerly known as Terreiro), Fonte do Freire or the unmistakable Rua Barão de Viamonte (Rua Direita), Rua de D. Afonso De Albuquerque and Largo Paio Guterres (‘Gato Preto’) are some recommended points of interest.
