A stunning modern station
One of the most stunning modern sights in Lisbon is Oriente Station.
It was built
by master architect Santiago Calatrava with a roof of glass and steel made
to look like a row of trees.
It houses a railway station, a metro, and a bus terminal. The entrance to the metro platform has huge tile murals designed by some of the best local contemporary artists.
The station will soon be expanded to become the main terminal of the high speed train service planned for Lisbon, and as the city's first stop for the train arriving from the future Lisbon Airport to be built across the river.
