Oriente Station

Oriente Station

Portugal's largest railway station and one of the main transfer points between trains, metro and buses, it is one of the leading jewels of contemporary European architecture.

Hotel closest to Oriente Station

The unique roofing and main entrance is the work of world-renowned architect Santiago Calatrava. The station was completed in 1998 before the Expo and is still one of the most interesting buildings in Portugal today.

The futuristic structure belies its inspiration from Gothic buildings, suggested by the austere, slender arches of the main roof over the platforms.

All northbound trains depart from here; if you're coming from Porto, you'll most certainly be passing through here. Timetables and online ticketing can be found at cp.pt.
