Lisbon’s Rossio Station once again the gateway to Sintra

It is now easier to visit Sintra, the must-see World Heritage town just outside Lisbon, now that the Portuguese capital’s most central station, Rossio Station, has reopened. Sintra's Pena Palace It had been closed for about three years, but this month’s reopening brought a more modern interior and a cleaner Neo-Manueline façade reminiscent of the style during the Age of Discovery. Built at the end of the 19th century, it is the terminal for suburban trains and used mostly for travel to Sintra.

Located between the central Rossio and Restauradores squares, it can easily be reached on foot from anywhere in the center of the city, or by metro, using the blue line (to Restauradores station) or the green line (to the Rossio station).

The striking horseshoe entrance of the station is therefore now once again your gateway to the fairytale world of Sintra, with its storybook palaces and magical vegetation. And as the weather gets warmer in the city, Sintra becomes even more inviting, as its hills always provide shelter from the heat. Spring also means an even greener Sintra, and an even more welcoming atmosphere.

It’s just one more reason why you can not miss Sintra in your tour of Portugal or even on a quick visit to Lisbon.
