Sandrine Vieira

Historically, Leiria was a prosperous commercial centre and it continues to honour this golden past. The historical centre of the city has reinvented itself in the last decades and cool trendy shops started popping up, along with the most traditional ones. Ideal for shopaholics or book worms.

Sandrine Vieira

It is from the combination of conceptuality, experimentation and creation of own manufacturing processes that the contemporary jewellery pieces, designed by Sandrine Vieira, are born.

The Paris-born artist and jewellery creator lives in Leiria and created her own brand in 2008 as a result of her great passion for jewellery.

Sandrine Vieira jewellery reflects her passion for life, for art, for ordinary everyday things, for what she sees and what surrounds her. One of the trademarks of her creations is the originality with which the collections of unique pieces are presented, giving extreme importance to the complicity with the public through the way the story and concept that originate the pieces are presented.

Arquivo Bookshop

Arquivo Bookshop opened its doors back in 1978. It is without any doubt a reference of the cultural scene of Leiria. What makes this bookshop is its independent spirit and sense of citizenship.

Arquivo is not only a bookshop. It's a place of cultural fruition, where several literary events take place, such as book releases; conversations with writers; exhibits; creative workshops; concerts or dance performances. The Reading Club meets every month to discuss selected literary works. It was founded 10 years ago by José Ribeiro Vieira, father of Alexandra Vieira, who in 2000 turned this bookshop in a cultural location of the city.

Book lovers can also enjoy the 2-storey cafeteria, where they can have a light meal or drink a coffee, while reading their favourite books. An inspiring place that celebrates the magic of words!
