Lisbon: Santa Apolónia Railway Station





The Santa Apolónia Station is the oldest railway terminus in Portugal. The station is situated along the northern margin of the Tagus River, in the Alfama district, integrated into the urban zone, along the Rua Caminhos de Ferro. Fronted by Rua Texeira Lopes, the three-register "U"-shaped building includes a short facade and long parallel wings extending around the rail platforms. The principal symmetrical facade consists of a three-register Neoclassical, divided into five unequal veins. The first floor is dominated by five large rounded doorways, in addition to a lateral doorways on opposite ends of the facade, with rounded windows interspersed between the porticos. On the second floor are rounded windows, with the central and lateral windows much larger and with lintels. On the final floor includes a triangular pediment dominated by a clock. Similarly, the central and lateral vains include rounded windows, interlaced by square windows.

Lisbon: Oriente Station






The Gare do Oriente is one of the main portuguese intermodal transport hubs, and is situated in the civil parish of Parque das Nações, Lisbon. The station was proposed as part of the modernization of the Linha do Norte, a modification to the rail line to facilitate the future development of an Oriente station. It was planned to occupy the lands once occupied by Apeadeiro dos Olivais, which was demolished in the 1990s in order to make way for the new station. Bids for building the project on lands to be used for the 1998 exposition were solicited internationally. The concept was originally designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava in 1995, and built by Necso.
