Varzea Grande in Tomar filled with cars

One of the problems of the City of Tomar is the lack of parking spaces. It was a big problem when I lived in my home town more than two decades ago, and it is still a problem today. This is Varzea Grande, also known as Largo 5 de Outubro, filled with cars. There was a time in the long past, this area of the town was almost empty, but with the arrival of motor vehicles, slowly but steadily, parking became a problem and Varzea Grande became a favourite place for those who needed a parking spot.

This area at Varzea Grande in Tomar is where Santa Iria Showgrounds is organized every year, but for the rest of the time, it is used as a parking area, due to the lack of parking spaces in other parts of the town
