To see Visiting Azoia

A couple of kilometres south of Leiria, and almost linked to it by many commercial and industrial ​pavilions, Azoia is a common village, combining agriculture with the opportunities of the neighbouring city.

Casarão, a restaurant dedicated to banquets, is also a good solution for those who want a good meal without entering the city.

Visiting Azoia - Church


With no significant elements, the church dates from 1822, rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake and the other “earthquake” that were the French invasions.

With predominantly agricultural activity, the modest aspect of the village in general, reveals some sober buildings that are very representative of the architecture of the region.


White elephant?

The village is crossed by the IC2, and the heavy traffic forced a pedestrian crossing to be built. Perhaps because of the distance between the accesses, I don’t remember ever seeing anyone using it.
