More than just a train stop.

A cavernous combination of stations with shopping centre attached. It fits well with the effectively redeveloped expo site.

Pretty impressive. I heard some people complaining about the restrooms... I have never used them so I... More

Using a Global Eurail Pass and covering five countries in 17 days we experienced 13 major European train stations...Estacao do Oriente was one of our favorites. It is big, but new, modern, clean, well marked and full of friendly English speaking people. One of its best assets is it being adjacent to the huge Vasco de Gama shopping complex with... More

The station has some interesting architecture you can ponder for a few moments and some very light shopping. It is connect to the Vasco de Gama mall and the gateway to the Parque de Naciones area.

I have taken the alfa pendular fast trains the length of Portugal and it always stops in Estacao do Oriente in Lisbon. The train station is very accessible, with beautiful architecture and is directly opposite a shopping centre as well as the Parque das Nacoes (Park of Nations). The Lisbon sightseeing bus stops here too. It is a convenient location... More

If you want to look at one of the greatest work by Calatrava you can definitely pay a visit to the Oriente Station, that it's also the starting point if you are visiting and going to the Expo 1998 site and then to the Oceanarium...

Grab the tube and make tracks for the Oriente Railway Station in Lisbon, it is beautiful. Designed by Santiago Calatrava The morning light streaming through the bird like wings of the canopy over the platforms is pure genius of design and concept, and mesmerising. The play of light and shadow is exquisite throughout the whole building. The use of steel... More

An interesting construction, but not worth to go on purpose....If you happen to go to the Vasco the Gama Shopping center then yes make the quick visit. Not much to see

I was told to visit this place because it looks spectacular and I do not regret doing it. It was a really nice place to see and it can be easily reached by the red metro line.
