Owner description: Em estilo neo-manuelino, a estação ferroviária do Rossio é um incrível monumento, que se situa entre a Praça do Rossio e os Restauradores e foi desenhada pelo arquiteto José Luís Monteiro. As oito portas combinam com as nove janelas e com o relógio incrivelmente decorado, situado no cimo da fachada.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

With such a beautiful façade, this station literally begs to be visited.
While the interiors are less architecturally interesting, there's a very nice deck on the upper floor, where you can view most of the town, plus a nice Starbucks on the ground floor for a short snack and drink break.

“A beautiful facade”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

I didn't take a train but just had a wander and a look. It's one of the best station buildings I've seen, on a par with Dakar and Helsinki.

“The facade is striking.”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Surely what is most striking at first sight of this station is the external facade, artistically very beautiful, the architectural style reminds me of one of those Arabian palaces, with the pointed spiers and finely carved decorations.
All in all, the interior does not offer anything that a simple train station like thousands allover the world, but you know, it worth giving a look as well.

“Pretty for a train station”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

Estação Ferroviária do Rossio is really pretty for a trains station.
The outside is better than the inside.
This is the place you take a train if you want to go to Sintra or Queluz.
