LEÇA DO BALIO
 

Leça do Balio is a land of rich heritage, in the municipality of Matosinhos, North of Portugal. This territory, part of the urban dynamics of Greater Porto, retains a unique identity, marked by a deep history and a vibrant local culture.
This place, highlighted by the emblematic presence of the Monastery of Leça do Balio, dates back to the 14th century and is a testimony to the influence of the Order of Malta in the region. Culturally, it is a fabric of traditions and modernity. Emotionally, a place of meaning and memory. The territory where the Leça River passes by, a symbol of continuity and renewal that flows through the community, and a crossing point for pilgrims who follow the Way of Saint James in search of spirituality and reflection.

Leça do Balio is truly a living portrait of the harmony between man and nature, a testimony to the past and a hopeful invitation to the future.
