Bom dia querido amigo!
Eu acho que foi nessa estação que pegamos o trem para visitar Sintra.
Maravilhosas fotos!

JM said...

Não, Léia, o combóio para Sintra apanha-se na estação do Rossio, que é em estilo Manuelino. Esta encontra-se à beira do rio Tejo e a linha segue paralela ao estuário e depois, ao mar.

Very elegant looking station.

Lovely ornaments. One should have thought these images were taken from different stations.

Cezar and Léia said...

Então será nessa estação que deveremos pegar o trem na nossa proxima aventura (férias)de Lisboa para visitar Oeiras! Legal!

What a beautiful station. Are the tile themes echoed in other parts of the city?

Hello JM! Wonderful details! Beautiful!
We have tagged you:) More information on our blog:)

brattcat said...

Thanks for suggesting I look at your travel blog. There are some fabulous shots, JM. You go to such interesting places. I loved your photos of Cappadocia. Fascinating how our eyes framed the region so differently. I also loved the shots of Patan. You make me want to repack my bag and take off immediately.

Train stations are great! I love to photograph them, old or new. These shots are wonderful, and it looks like such a beautiful place. I would like to take that train ride.

More mosaics... beautiful!

I love train stations... probably because that here are so underrated (it's more of a political thing though).

marley said...

What a wonderful building with such stunning artdeco detail. One of my favourite design styles.

Marc said...

Nice deco with its own specific style.

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

such a visually interesting train station. i really like the first shot and love the tile throughout.

Hilda said...

Fantastic details. Especially the tiles (again!). It's nice to see that the art of tile making has not been lost there at all.

cieldequimper said...

What I wouldn't give to have such a fabulous train station!

Julie said...

The art deco in the station is quite fantastic, JM. I would enjoy more posts on this same topic.
