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!
