The Lis Paper Mill

The Lis Paper Mill
Located by the Caniços Bridge over the River Lis, there is the Paper Mill. Built in 1411, according to a nearby stone carved during the reign of king João I, this was the first paper producing facility in Portugal. It bears reference to the Jewish community of Leiria with its own typographic heritage as it was here that the paper was actually produced. The city is referred to as the site of the first printing works in Portugal stating that in 1495, it produced the first ever national scientific book, the "Almanach Perpetuum".

The location of the mill is highlighted by a tile panel. There remains the warehouse, the miller's house and the mill itself. It still works, producing flour, even if it has seen better days.
