The Assembly of the Republic has a space that is open to the public – the Parliamentary bookshop. The entrance is in the main façade of São Bento Palace.
The goal of the Parliamentary bookshop is to make it easier to get to know more about the Assembly of the Republic and the work done by this ‘entity that exercises sovereignty’.
Parliament’s publications catalogue, which is distributed free of charge, makes it possible to identify all the publications that have been available since 1977 and can be consulted or purchased, by area of interest.
The bookshop also sells a range of evocative objects inspired by the Palace’s historical heritage:
Books from other publishers may also be purchased.
The Parliamentary Bookshop reopened to the public on 1 June, after having been closed on 16 March as a preventive and precautionary measure against the spread of COVID-19.
It reopened with all the safety measures required by the epidemiological situation, including the use of face masks, the use of hand sanitiser upon entering, compliance with social distancing rules, and the use of gloves to handle any books or items.
The Parliamentary Bookshop is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.on working days.
