“Beautiful station and helpful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

This is a classic station from the outside, but once inside you are overwhelmed with vast tile murals, cleanliness of the station and the modern training facilities. We had a Eurorail pass it worth continuing on to Lisbon for a final two days in Europe, but we needed information on which train to take. While we were in the station, we noticed many people sitting on benches and thought that we were going to be there for a a while. Much to our surprise the line moved very quickly and when we spoke to The gentleman in the ticket window we were treated courteously and with respect even though we did not speak the language. He spoke perfect English and helped us get our tickets in a timely manner. It turned out to be a wonderful experience, especially the vendor with the fresh roasted chestnuts, and inside the station the Portuguese homemade pastries, Yum!

“Lots of stuff nearby!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Plenty of architecture, shops, and this metro stop is a very short walk to the Dom Luis bridge over the Rio Douro. If you'd rather take the metro across, stay on and get off at the next stop, Jardim do Morro.

Have a look at the main hall with typical local wall paintings. Easy to get there as at city center near to everything.

“Beautiful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

Majestic. The building commands an impressive position in the city and feels more like a museum that a train station.The beautiful tile murals depict important moments in Portuguese history. Great way to start your journey!

“Beautiful tile panels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

Wonderful tile panels in the entrance vestibule to the station. The mainly blue and white tiles depict landscapes and historical scenes and these are very impressive.
