Built in Neo-Manueline style, a 19th century revivalism of the unique Portuguese late-gothic Manueline, this remarkable station and monument has been listed as a building of public interest since 1971. Eight doors combines with nine windows and a lavishly decorated clock high up on the façade. Originally, the site included the station’s metallic-roof building, an adjoining hotel, the Rossio Tunnel and access ramps to Largo do Carmo. The large station nave was covered by a glass and steel overhanging structure measuring 130 meters in length and 21 meters in height. One of its striking features is the fact that the passenger boarding platforms rise some 30 meters above the main entrance.
