Beautiful building, well worth a walk round before catching the train to Sintra. When you get to Sintra , you'll need to catch the 434 bus that goes from the second stop down the side of Sintra station. A good 100 yards from the front. Just beware of the 'sharks' hovering around the front of the station hoping to catch... More

Easy to find your way to the train to Sintra. Know that when we bought tickets for Sintra, they didn't accept our credit card and we had to pay cash.

This building looks great. We did get a local train as we wanted to see the aqueduct they have in Lisbon. The ticket man was very helpul although I think he thought we were a bit crazy for wanting to go and see the aqueduct, he told us which ticket and where to go. The trains seem well organised and...

The Rossio Train Station stands in between the Restauradores square and the Rossio Square. You can not miss this imponent and impressive building. Take your time to see all the little details of the arquithecture, and if possible go inside all the way to the train lines and let yourself go in an impressive building and landmark.

This is the most beautiful building and viewed from the street you get the full impact of the Moorish style horseshoe arches. When you enter the building and go up to the platforms by the escalator you can appreciate all the beautiful tile work adorning the platforms.

This is a very beautiful building in the middle of the old town and a very intersting one, because it has little to do with the style of the neighbourhood. Nicely renovated, it is also very lively.

This an incredibly beautiful building, and a great spot to start your day or your outing. Grab a coffee, chill and people watch, and then hop a train to Cascais, Sintra, or where ever. Or wander the really cool gift shop before you go off to explore the city. We started every day here at the Starbucks, and then set... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
