from the outside the castle looks big. from down the city it looks very nice at night, with the lights and everything. but i was expecting a lot more once climbing up to i. the castle is small inside, it was the main room, a former church, a tower and a small yard. there is no pavement of any sort,...

Great castle to see as it gives that hands on experience of Medieval life which to us, in XXI century would be shocking in it's raw naturalism. Think how you would walk on the cobblestones in XIV century shoes rather than your average Timberland up and down especially in rain! And hygiene? What hygiene!

I've been to many castles, this is one of my favorites because I can almost picture how life was during the Medieval times. From here we have a breathtaking view of all Leiria. I strongly recommend its visit.

as a castles lover I don't mind climbing to visit one! The access to the castle of Leiria is not very good for people with walking difficulties! Once up there you will enjoy the beautiful view over the city and further.

This amazing castle gives Leiria a great charm. In a good state of conservation you can enjoy a beautiful landscape from the city. Very relaxing to bring your family, or as a romantic place.

If you think you have seen everything about castles, you really should go to Leiria. Once you are at the spot you have plenty of information, concerning what to see, with detail. So you must keep on climbing till you reach the Torre de Menagem. From there you´ll have the most beautiful sight into Leiria and till tou reached that... More
