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.

More modern architectural nothing worth other than the design. If you are not a architect it may not be interesting for you.

The upper level of the station with the arched meralwork is a joy, but the lower levels in stark concrete are draughty and gloomy and barely brightened by the shops and kiosks

This is one of Lisbon's important railway stations connecting various parts of Lisbon and the country itself. The architecture on the outside is stylish and modern. The station is well equipped and planned very well. It has so many lifts to accomodate the daily passenger traffic. The station is integrated with metro services as well. This is just opposite to...

I didn’t take a train there but whenever I pass by I always think it is too beautiful to be “only” a train station. The architecture of the building is so different and so nice that you should see it for yourself. You can take the metro to go there, then get outside and appreciate it. But don’t go only... More

If you are into architecture, you MUST visit this place. Santiago Calatrava was surely inspired when he designed this place. You don't have to ride the trains if you don't feel like it, but simply being there and seeing the place is amazing. Definitely worth some picture moments.

There is lots of shops, restaurants, cinema and perfect location. You can reach it easily by metro. And many sightseeing objects are near.
