"The best Province of Portugal" Distrito de Leiria by solopes

Distrito de Leiria Travel Guide: 1,095 reviews and 3,460 photos

It's the best of Portugal because...it's mine. But I hope that, after your visit, you'll agree with me.
Centrally located, and by the coast, Leiria's district is strategically positioned to act as a touristic hub for a wide visit to Portugal. The district is minutes away from Lisbon, Coimbra or Santarem, and less than two hours from Porto, Aveiro or Evora. More than that, it has some of the best attractions of Portugal. According to my personal preferences, here my local stars:

*** - Do not miss

Alcobaça (now with Cos)

** - Very Interesting


* - Interesting

Caldas da Rainha
S. Martinho do Porto
Foz do Arelho
Marinha Grande
S. Pedro de Muel


If you have time:
Vieira de Leiria, Pedrogao, and, of course... Turquel.

Living in the area it was not difficult to gather a few impressions about Arrimal, Ataíja, Benedita, Bombarral, Consolação, Évora de Alcobaça, Gaeiras, Mendiga, Salir do Porto, Santa Catarina ou Vimeiro
