Gare do Oriente

Take a break from history and step back into the present at Gare do Oriente, a short metro ride from central Lisbon. This gargantuan spaceship of a transit station serves as a hub for buses, regional trains, and high-speed rail lines. Chances are, if you plan on traveling to other parts of Portugal, you’ll find yourself here. Make sure to give yourself lots of extra time to get lost in its magnificent spaces. The waves of glass and metal, designed by starchitect Santiago Calatrava, make waiting for any train a far more pleasant experience.
