We have no parking, as do almost all buildings in the historic center. However, there are several options for parking nearby. Either on the street at parking meters or in parking lots.
The closest park is the Ferreira Borges Market park, but expensive!
O Crystal Palace Park is the cheapest. There are other parks closer to the B28, such as the Palácio da Justiça Park next to the courthouse. To enter this park you have to be careful, you have to pass in front of the emergency room at Hospital Santo António and watch out for the traffic lights, go down behind the Palácio da Justiça and then up the street just in front of Cooperativa Árvore. The entrance to the park is on the right-hand side and the Praça de Lisboa Park.
You can always try to park in Passeio da Virtudes, Largo das Taipas, Largo de São João Novo have parking meters and the rate is cheaper than these ones here in Rua Ferreira Borges.
