Rossio Station - Looking more like a lavish theatre or a nobleman's palace, this is the station for local trains departing from Lisbon to Sintra.

The interesting thing about the station is that the railway platforms are not at the entrance level but about 30 meteres above the entrance!

One of the most attractive features are the horseshoe shaped archways which serve as the entrances to the station. The station was closed for 3 years for renovation, and, has only re-opened in Feb 2008.
