The area
Neighbourhood: Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.

    An efficient transport hub
    This is a very busy but welcoming and highly efficient train station. It has an impressive ornate facade. The trains run on time and it is the link to Sintra (amongst other places). Since it is such a busy hub it is best to get there early. It is situated to the side of the famous Rossio Square.

    The Train to Sintra
    One rushes through this station so fast that one does not have the chance to notice that it is grand and attractive. Classic old school train station. And there are basic services here like food, coffee, and journals. This is where you get the train to Sintra.

    Beautiful Station and One of the Main Stations
    One of the most beautiful and main stations in Lisbon. You can buy cheap tickets to go to Sintra from Lisbon. It only takes around 40 minutes. A round trip ticket will cost you only 4.5 Euros.

    Important Station, Lovely Entrance
    This is a beautiful building and is in the center of the tourist activity. You are likely to come here to take a train to Sintra. Very busy as it is the station for many suburban locations. A big coffee store, some souvenirs, and a big open square in front. Lovely entrance.

    Small station located in Baixa District
    Rossio Train Station is located centrally in Baixa and is near Rossio Square where the Christmas Markets are held. The architecture is lovely and inspired by classical 16th-Portugese Manueline architecture. Its a small and easy to navigate station with the ticket office and platforms located up the escalators. We didnt have delays puchasing tickets but can be busy for the early morning rush to Sintra. We used this station to reach Sintra and the process was easy.

Entering the wide ornamental doors you come to a modern interior with elevators leading upstairs to the trains. To avoid queuing for a ticket to Sintra use the travelcard bought easily at any metro station for 0,50 euros and load value with your credit card.

Very pretty station and efficient ticket machines. Train to Sintra pretty good but passes through some bad areas. On returning to Rossio at 9 o'clock it didn't feel very safe and there were a few bad behaved people who got on and off. Usual thug stuff like loud music, cursing at each other etc. Luckily a guard walked thru and removed one. I would avoid taking this train during night time if you can as its not as nice as the Lisbon metro.

A terrible experience with a teller left our family feeling upset and angry. Portugal - and its people - have been amazing so far. A man asked my husband for his passport, rejected his ID and insisted he walk back to our hotel and get his documents. This was just to board a quick train to Sintra. We did not see anyone else being asked for their IDs. Upsetting but not representative of the people as a whole.

What a building. We thought it looked amazing and we were actually disappointed to find out it was just a train station....with a Starbucks. One of our favourite buildings in the city and it's a stupid train station........with a Starbucks!

I must admit it is one of the best hallmarks in the area. Gorgeous architecture and Azulejo all around. I only wish it would be more cleaner.
