A stunning modern marvel in the Western territory of Lisbon is the Gare do Oriente, It is a standout amongst the most significant transport center points in the nation's capital. The Gare Do Oriente is a multi-purpose station and hence is a hub for tourists that certainly makes it worth a look but what is striking is the architecture.
The roof, built in the form of waves especially is its most striking feature. The exterior of the station is very striking and you are not likely to miss it if you are anywhere nearby but the interiors are equally beautiful. Painted with murals and modern art, it makes it worthwhile to visit the station even if you don’t happen to be travelling by train.

One of the best located train stations there is in my opinion. Metro down stairs, bus and taxi on grund level. Local and long distance trains on highest level. Close to airport and exit from the city. Nearby is a very good shopping center, with food court and a hyper market. Good walking area by the river and several interesting attractions such as the Oceanarium. At the station there are free toilets, Police station, cafés and fast food as well as lockers to leave your luggage. Extra bonus is the fine archtitecture of the station, and the easy access with elevators escalators and stairs to all levels.
The lift to the top floor took at least 6 minutes to take me up one floor! For some reason it goes from the bottom floor to the top floor and only then it picks up people from the middle floor when it’s on it’s way down! What an engendering marvel! Why can’t it just pick me up when it’s going up? Next, the security guys are rude and useless not to mention their disregard for the facility where they work since I saw two securities walking past a hot dog which someone dropped and didn’t even call the cleaners to deal with it and it was quite desgusting, but it seems about right since the whole facility is dirty. Lack of signage is just mind boggling and different ticket offices at different ends of the middle floor make this place the biggest joke. Lastly, I was also waiting for a train which was delayed 3 HOURS and since I was tired I though I could lie down and take a little nap. HOW WRONG I WAS! apparently people cannot sleep in their facility! Even though they are a transportation platform where people are constantly waiting for transports! That’s all I guess...unless there’s no other option...you won’t catch me there anytime soon
Beautiful railway station, one of the best works of Santiago Calatrava!
Stunning building first of all really cool design. Howver signage is definatley needed, to guide the non local. Its big so is quite confusing. Its a bus and train station so easy access from downtown lisbon, with very regular service
Very large and modern Station one..
