Rossio Railway Station
In neo-mauretan style, the Rossio railway station is an outstanding building set between Rossio Square and Restauradores Square and was designed by the architect José Luís Monteiro.
Rossio Station
This monumental building was built at a time when train stations were seen as temples of technology. It is one of the strangest architectural complexes housing a rail terminal in Europe.
Baixa: Lisbon downtown
Commerce Square: view from a ferry sailing from the Cais do Sodre to the other side of the Tagus river
Augusta Street: One of the busiest quarters of Lisbon.

The eight doors match the nine palatial windows and the incredibly decorated clock tower located on the top of the facade.
Rossio station is a curiosity in that the platforms are some 30 metres above the main entrance. Services from here are all suburban trains to the tourist sights of Sintra via Queluz.

Built in 1886/87, this station has been recently renovated. The boarding platform is now connected to the Metro Station, though this is with the nearest Metro station at Restauradores and the work done on the ceiling is simply breathtaking.

It was closed for over three years for major renovation, but reopened in February of 2008.

Rossio is one of the most beautiful and liveliest squares in the city. People stop here to sit and relax, or for a drink at the several atmospheric cafes with outdoor sitting (the most popular is the art deco Café Nicola on the western side).
The Praça dos Restauradores (Restorer’s Square) is located on the south end of Avenida da Liberdade (Liberty Avenue), right beside the Rossio railway station.
Baixa, literally translated as ’low’, is situated in the gulf between the two main hills of the city and is the central business and shopping district of the capital.
