The Centre, on the outskirts of Vila Franca de Xira, is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The region is bordered on the north side by a protected forest and on the south side by the shores of the river Tejo.
It is just 600 metres off the N1 Road with easy access.
Its entrance is wide, covered over with the boughs of ancients trees. There is an ample car park, and its gardens are laid out with trees and shrubs, giving the CELG a sense of space and leisure.
