Estacao Gare do Oriente, Lisbon

3.9
#105 of 974 in Things to do in Lisbon
Boasting an intricate glass roof design intended to replicate trees, Estacao Gare 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.

  • This work of Santiago Calatrava is a magnificent vision and it's amazing that, after 20 years, continue so spectacular as during the Expo 98. Just a fix-if you're waiting for the train in days of rain and wind, the experience may not be very pleasant, especially on platforms 1 or 8.

  • On the morning of the 5/1 went to go to Porto. In going to breakfast at the station because the train was the 8: 09 shots woke early with Jet-lag, arrived ahead of time. I got off the subway's route to the station had no doubt, lead a simple and appropriate signs. It was 7 am holiday units may have come from, but not open shops are not people at all, Miss. Crowded cafes, hardworking people from early in the morning and station of the capital of Europe, I can eat or stand, but the Gare do Oriente Gala-and as was. Ensure that ordered ago that only food stand where the tables and chairs, wretchedly. Was the time in the waiting room after the meal a little heated glass. Home again, no signs the book, didn't know that the tip side either in the home had the No. 1 car. I told the person I was in the neighborhood, but which no one side if you do not know. That doesn't seem like Portugal who. Think, save time and wasted waiting in a car near my mobile is only a Japanese might be.
