Leiria : Michelin's recommendations
Leiria, dominated by a hill crowned with a medieval castle, is located at the confluence of two rivers, the Liz and the Lena. Its role at the crossroads near to famous beaches - especially the one at Nazaré -, to the sanctuary of Fatima and some magnificent architectural works at Batalha and at Alcobaça make this a busy thoroughfare or a perfect place to stay for the summer visitor, the pilgrim and the touring art lover.
