Photographer's Note

Tomorrow morning I'll be on my way to Bruxelles for a short Christmas visit.

I hope you'll all have the best Merry time the days that will follow.

Merry Christmas!

The Rossio Railway Station (Estação de Caminhos de Ferro do Rossio) is a railway station in Lisbon, located in the Rossio square.

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. Inside, the platforms are connected by ramps to the façade level and are covered by a cast-iron structure executed by a Belgian firm. The station is an important example of Romantic (façade) and Cast-iron (platform cover) architecture in Portugal.

Trains gain access to the station, which is in the central urban area of Lisbon, through a tunnel which is more than 2600m long.
