The training camp maps cover a region between Nazaré, Pataias, Marinha Grande, Osso da Baleia, Leirosa and Figueira da Foz/Quiaios. Located near the Atlantic Ocean, this region has a fair variety of vegetation types, but the famous Leiria Pinewood Forest is the predominating one, along the seaside.

This is a central region of the country, half-way between Lisbon (130 Km) and Porto (180 Km).

It is served by 3 highways providing excellent accessibilities: A1 highway connecting Lisbon to Porto, A8 highway connecting Lisbon to Leiria and A17 highway connecting Aveiro to Leiria.
