Not available in this edition

Built in 1998, this station, also known as the Lisbon Intermodal Station (GIL) was a fundamental work in terms of access to Lisbon World Exposition of 1998. The interface, which integrates long-distance and suburban trains, a metro line and public bus station, was one of the entry points for Expo ’98. The architect defined it as “(…) a station with a human vocation, very organic (…)”, and that idea is visible in the foundational structures that create open squares, and the elevated railway station platforms covered by a structure of metal elements that resembles a forest. In its interior, the station aims to be an open building, visible from all sides, in order to facilitate a more direct connection with the river for the passengers who use it.
