The Rossio train station is the main Central train station that caters mainly the west coast train. It was deigned between 1886 and 1887 and originally had only one railway that commuted passengers between Lisbon and Sintra.
The station is build in Neo Manueline style that refers to the typical architectural Manueline style of the late 16 th century and it was designed by the Portuguese architect José Luís Monteiro. It’s main entrance horse shoe shape arches are one of it’s most interesting visual feature and the station is an important example of Romantic Portuguese architecture and Cast-iron architecture in Portugal (platforms inside)
The Rossio station is not very well marked and has no name or reference outside that will tell you that it is, however seeing the arches you will recognise it!
The Rossio station is built on one the main squares of Central Lisbon, the Rossio square.See related: Lisbon | Points of interest Lisbon
