A good castle with a great view on the city. Entrance cost is 2.10 euros but I advice you to get 2.50 ticket for both castle and museum of moving image that is located nearby.

It was a very good walk through the castle and we could see the different types of architecture and the constructions added in the 13th and 14th century. We enjoyed the ruines and especially the sights of Leiria.

The visit of the Castle could be done but better to wait a nice weather to get the best view . From the city you can have some great pictures too. Interesting in the city.

This was an unexpected treat! We arrived on a festival day so had free entry, and were amazed at how large and well preserved the castle is. There was plenty to see and excellent views from the top of the surrounding countryside.

The castle is on top of a hill and the view of the surrounding villages is very nice on its own. The visit is cheap (2€), but there are very few descriptions of what are essentially ruins. The rare descriptive panels are in Portuguese only...More

A very nice castle with an amazing view over the city, and loved the activities happening inside the castle - some kind of medieval market!

We'd love the visit to the castle. It was very interesting knowing a bit more of the history of Leiria. The visits price is also very affordable

I was told by hotel staff that there is no parking space near the castle. In general it is true but in the early morning there was a lot of space for parking

Great views over the city from the castle. You can easily spend an hour or two walking around enjoying the views. Cheap entry.

We enjoyed our day in Leiria. There is not much information about the history of the castle. It's worth visiting, you get to see some parts of the castle that are more ruins and others well preserved.
