    • The Rossio Railway Station, located in the Rossio square, was formerly known as Estação Central (Central Station) and that designation still appears in its façade. The station was commissioned by the Portuguese Royal Railway Company and was designed between 1886 and 1887 by Portuguese architect José Luís Monteiro. It was built in one of the most important squares of Lisbon, the Rossio, and connected the city to the region of Sintra. This tunnel was excavated under the city and is considered one of the most important works of engineering in Portugal dating from the 19th century
    • The Neo-Manueline façade dominates the northwest side of the square and is a Romantic recreation of the exuberant Manueline style, typical of early 16th century Portugal.
    • Its most interesting features are the two intertwined horseshoe portals at the entrance, the clock in a small turret and the abundant sculptural decoration
    • Praça do Rossio
    • Rossio Square is the popular name of the Pedro IV Square in Lisbon. It is located in Downtown and has been one of its main squares since the Middle Ages. It has been the setting of popular revolts and celebrations, bullfights and executions, and is now a preferred meeting place of Lisbon natives and tourists alike.
    • The current name of the Rossio pays homage to Pedro IV, King of Portugal as well as first Emperor of Brasil (as Pedro I). The Column of Pedro IV is in the middle of the square
    • Jacaranda trees in Rossio Square
    • The Franco-Swiss author Blaise Cendrars called railway stations "the most beautiful churches in the world," and this station could be an example. It is one of the strangest architectural complexes housing a rail terminal in Europe, and today it is the local station for trains to Sintra. Trains from Rossio station to Sintra depart every 15 minutes from early morning until late into the evening. There are a dozen or so intermediate stops between Lisbon Rossio and Sintra and the journey takes just short of 40 minutes
