  • Paying small amounts with a big bill does not work. The machine simply refuses.
  • This whole area is lovely to walk around. Extensive grassy areas and nearby there are many restaurants. A great place to visit as long as its a warm and sunny day. Not sure its the place to be on a cold and wet day though!
  • Very nice place to park your car in the middle of Lisbon.
  • Interesting monumental park above the city centre, surrounded by hotels. Nice to see.
  • At lisbon's heart, this big car Park has always available places to park the vehicle.
