Along the banks of the Lis
Move on past the José Lúcio da Silva Cine-Theatre, the most important of its kind in the city, take a look at the Residence of the old Church of São Francisco, with its medieval paintings that are among the most valuable in Leiria’s rich artistic heritage.
Then, head back along the River.
Heading in the other direction from the Luis de Camões Garden, there is the Church of Espírito Santo. Going along Rua João de Deus and Rua Tenente Valadim you come to the Convent of Santo Agostinho with its pleasant gardens.
A little further on there is an old paper mill. It continues in operation but now produces flour.
Further along and up, there is the Monte de São Gabriel enclosing the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora da Encarnação with views out across the city capable of rivalling even those from the Castle.
