Located east of the city centre between the hills of Alfama and the Tejo estuary, the station is Lisbon’s oldest and was opened in 1865. Built on the site of an old convent and designed in the Neoclassical style, it was originally envisaged that Santa Apolónia would be the final rail stop connecting mainland Europe to America via cruise liners which would dock at a nearby wharf. As it transpired, it never fulfilled that function, although Lisbon does have deep docks which now regularly welcome cruise ships bound for the Mediterranean circuit. Here are some useful facts on the station and attractions you can roll out to nearby:
