Estacao do Oriente, Lisbon

(3.9/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Boasting an intricate glass roof design intended to replicate trees, Estacao do Oriente serves both as an architectural oddity and the city's busiest transportation hub. The brainchild of Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the station acts as a nexus for rail, subway, and bus lines around the urban area. Catch transportation here to get around town or to other parts of the country. Wander the eight platforms and many interior areas featuring a host of shops and cafes, or make your way over to the attached shopping center. Admire the twisting support structures and intricate features of the building, culminating at the top in the series of geometric patterns and arches. Use our Lisbon vacation builder to arrange your visit to Estacao do Oriente and other attractions in Lisbon.

  • Oriente station is a large modern building constructed as part of the Lisbon international exhibition in 1998. It is rather dark and does not charm, in contrast to some historical stations in Lisbon or in other Portuguese cities...

  • Designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava's special position in the building. A beautiful. Keep, but take some distance in order to see it better.

  • Our train was leaving from this station, so we had the opportunity to know the Mall located next to it. Metro station connects with the whole. Impressive invoice of the vault of the train station.
