Once the southern outpost of the early Portuguese kingdom, Leiria on the River Liz was repeatedly attacked by the Moors, its castle destroyed and rebuilt four times.

Originally the Roman town of Collipo, it was recaptured from the Moors by Afonso Henriques in the 12th century. Between Leiria and the Atlantic Ocean to the west stretches a great pine forest, originally planted by King Dinis to secure the shifting sand dunes and supply wood for ship building.

Leirias castle was built in 1324 by King Dinis as a fortress and summer palace for himself and his queen, Isabel of Aragon. Below the castle is the small 12th-century Romanesque church of São Pedro.

The nearby Marinha Grande 12 km to the west of Leiria has a glass factory originally founded by Englishman John Beare in 1748. The abbey at Batalha 11 km south is one of Portugals most important monuments.
