Beautiful station. Clearly it's been upgraded lately minus the bathrooms! Gross. Pee everywhere, homeless showering in the sinks, graffiti everywhere. Felt safe there. Right across from the Oriente shopping center.

Completed in 1998 this central station is an architectural and engineering masterpiece both up and underground. There are signs showing need for restoration after 20 years. A great pity that the majority of commuters just rushly cruise through without appreciating its beauty.

This is a lovely and central station, which was truly hectic during the Eurovision Song Contest period, as most spectators arrived to the nearby Altice arena via this station.

One of the main train station of Lisbon and the most spectacular one, for sure. Impressive architecture, otherwise nothing different to any other train stations. Also here is a metro station. Across the street you can find Vasco da Gama Shopping Centre. Not far from...More

Even if you weren't coming out to Parque das Nacoes for a specific reason (going to the Oceanarium, say) it would be worth making the trip out to the Oriente district just to see the railway station alone. Hugely impressive structure, and even more appealing...More

Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s

artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll
explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping
center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car
ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the
