Beautiful station, but very difficult for an overseas visitor to use! I travelled to the station by bus - but had to guess when we had arrived! I was catching a train to Coimbra, and found it difficult to work out where the main station actually was. Having found the station I was disconcerted to realise that there was no main departure board, and no obvious way of finding out when my train was leaving or from which platform. Neither was it clear (to a non Portuguese speaker) where to buy the ticket. Finally, on the platform, trains were only identified by final destination. When I asked someone whether the Porto train called at Coimbra, I was misinformed that it did not!
This would be fine for a small local station, but for one which handles long distance and international services it is pretty poor.
