Postcards from Leiria

Standard

Our first visit to the regional capital of Leiria. Sounds like: “Lay-ree-a”. About an hour’s drive from us and as we are in Leiria district, I guess it’s our capital, despite not seeming to have any governmental connection to the place. It’s an elegant small city of 60,000-ish people with pleasant parks, a decent amount of pedestrian streets in the old town, a castle on a rock, a river and for added bonus points, a veggie restaurant. This was a street wander just to soak up the place. No castle or museum visits, so this time you’ll be spared the history and useless facts. Enjoy the postcards.
