Train Travel

by sheebud

I am travelling from Albufeira to Lisbon and staying in the Lapa Palace Hotel. What train station would be the best to arrive in nearest to the hotel and centre of Lisbon.

According to the Portuguese railway website:

http://www.cp.pt/cp/displayPage.do?vgnextoid=a4f6f9e12a584010VgnVCM1000007b01a8c0RCRD

the Albufeira train arrives at Lisboa-Entrecampos station. I don't think you have a choice of stations.

From there you will probably need a taxi to your hotel, as the nearest Metro station is quite some distance away.

Best to take a taxi from Entrecampos to your hotel (good choice by the way) it is only about 5 kms directly and will take about 15 minutes. Bus 727 is a good option too and full schedule is on here:

Taking it from the station to Av Infante Santo the stop after Presidente Arriaga and then walk as Pedro says.

The bus leaves from just off the main road called Av. de la Republica from a stop underneath the railway bridge that you just arrived over ! According to the timetable it may take about 25 minutes with bus leaving every 12 minutes and last bus 21.30

On second thoughts just take a taxi......

Some of the trains from Albufeira to Lisbon also stop at the Sete Rios station in the city. This is a little closer to the hotel, but that station is a bit of a maze so Entrecampos, being a simpler layout, is a good suggestion.

The final station in Lisbon for trains from Algarve is Lisbon Oriente, right over on the eastern side of the city with connections to the centre and north of the country. Oriente is also the closest to the airport.

Travel Tips for Lisbon

Expo 98 benefit

by solopes

The eastern part of Lisbon was awful, a true shame for all. The needs to embellish the area to receive the exhibition, gave a "face-lift" to a large area, and some old and degraded buildings were recovered.

Now, travelling in Marvila it's a true pleasure to those that once knew the area and confirmed that, when man wants everything has a solution. Even at a price...

visit the old, traditional quartes of Lisbon to look for river Tejo , take a walk along the river, drink and read something on the Café or restaurant and to appreciate the sight on the other margin of the river

Estação do Rossio - Rossio train station

by a2lopes

Between Rossio and Restauradores squares at Largo João da Câmara, stands the original late 19th century building of the Estação do Rossio, Rossio train station. It is a masterpiece and a Romantic recreation of the exuberant Manueline style (typical of early 16th century) with an interesting façade with 2 horse-shoe shaped arches (where you see written “Estação Central”, central station) and the statue of king Sebastião set between them.

Sebastião was our only king to die in a war. Sebastião had plans for a great crusade against the kingdom of Morocco since his childhood. But those were bad times for the nation as the young king took almost all of the country's nobility, and against the advice of his commanders, marched to this war with unprepared (and much less) troops. At the Battle of Alcácer Quibir (Battle of the Three Kings) the Portuguese army was routed by Abd Al-Malik, and Sebastião was almost certainly killed in battle. Whether his body was ever found is uncertain and this led many Portuguese to believe Sebastião survived the battle and would return to claim his throne. This led to Sebastianism: the belief that Sebastian could return at any moment, according to the saying “in a foggy morning”.

Back to the station. Looking more like an adorned palace, the building was designed by the architect José Luiz Monteiro and it begun in 1887, the official opening taking place on June 1890 a time when train stations were seen as temples of technology.
The Station astonishes for his facade of eight doors that combine with the nine windows and with its watch in a small turret with an abundant sculptural decoration. It is one of the strangest architectural complexes housing a rail terminal in Europe (and I know some), and the actual platforms from which the trains leave are located 30 m above the street-level. If you enter from the main entrance there are escalators up to that level and the platforms are easy to find. The access of trains to the station (really in the heart of the city), is made by a tunnel more than 2600 m long. This tunnel was excavated under the city and is considered one of the most important works of engineering of Portugal in the 19th century. For many years covered in grey, because of all the pollution around the station was closed for over three years for major renovation, got its original white color, and reopened in February of 2008.

Beside the station there is a Beaux-Arts style hotel building, the Hotel Avenida, inaugurated in 1892 and also built by José Luís Monteiro. A nice view from the nearby downtown area can be spotted from the Escadinhas do Duque -the stairs on the back part of the station that leads to Bairro Alto. This is also a cheap typical restaurant area (some houses offer fado).

Most of Lisbon’s buses stop nearby at the Rossio square and the closest metro stations are “Rossio” (green line) and Restauradores (blue line).

Watch out tapas served looks like on the house!!

by Birsen

When you have the table in the restaurant the staff brings tapas (starter dishes) before you order and they do not say anything. Usually like cheese, ham, chorizo (portugese peperoni) or olives kind of things. If you eat them you will pay for it, don't forget they are not a gift. (see the picture). So eat if you are willing to pay otherwise don't touch it :P
