Rossio Square


Right on the bustling Rossio Square, near Restauradores Avenue in the heart of the city, a railway tunnel nearly 3 km long opens up, at the end of which is Rossio Central Station, where some of the long-distance trains terminate.

The magnificent station building

The station building itself is an architectural gem, and if it weren't for the unobtrusive "Estacao Central" sign, you'd hardly guess it was a working railway building.

At first glance, it looks more like a small palace and even the interior is an artistic delight to the soul. The main station building dates back to 1891.

Apart from the aesthetic aspect, of course, the station also has a purely practical purpose. Trains leave from here in all directions, including Porto (although northbound services leave from Santa Apolónia station on the riverbank).

Also, the Restauradores pre-market area is one of the main transport hubs, where two metro lines and several bus lines cross.
