  • One of the most surprising things of cities in Portugal are its impressive football stadiums. For cities so small (relatively) stages are immense. You will find it by one of the entrances to the city.

  • This stadium has a great location , great parking, and great roadways to arrive there. The big problem is like what other viewers have stated is it is very under utilized. There could be more events such as Sobre Rodas which would bring in more people and also make it financially rewarding for the city of Leiria. I believe a series of summer concerts, local soccer games, open air markets from different regions of the country would help stimulate interest in the city of Leiria and also help pay the expenses of the stadium. Long live Leiria!
