A castle full of history and legends

On top of the cliff over the Leiria city, is well worth a visit. A castle full of history and legends. Do not forget to visit bellow the old city.

Amazing castle! Have been 3 times for the Gothic festival Entremuralhas! It's an icon of the city! Can be seen from far and at night it feels magical back in the medieval times!

True that I didn't saw all the castles in the world, probably the most recognizable are more beautiful. But still, the most underrated castle in the world. The front is amazingly beautiful, wherever you look at it, in most of the town. And inside, nevertheless the rest of the Castle is ruis, but the Noble Salon is amazing. And the... More

It's a great place to visit. 3€ fee entrance. Unfortunately still needs more accessibility, since it's difficult to reach some areas of the castle.

The only drawback in visiting this attraction is the number of stairs that have to be climbed and the footing is not great for some one who is unsure. Part of the palace has been nicely restored and affords a wonderful glimpse into how life must have been. Great city views, worth the effort.

The castle of Leiria is the one thing you should see during your trip to Leiria. I find it stunning and really worth visiting, since it is very well preserved and the view down to the city is simply stunning. Also it is a great place for an effective morning or late afternoon walk!

We have a great view of the castle from our hotel so decided to walk uphill to visit it. We started walking from the tourist information centre, near the bus station and main historic area. Firstly, the walk looks very high but you do it In stages with level walks in between. It really is not as far away as... More

I like to visit Portugal in the early spring time as its so much cooler and just warm in the day time.So many little shops and beaches to stroll along. Almost people there speak english and are willing to help.
