Not a lot of facilities in the station, though I would highly recommend buying your palace tickets at the TI within the station. The lines there are much shorter than the lines at the various palaces. Spring for the combo ticket and save a few...More

If you have been traveling by train in Europe, say as everywhere else. Just check the timetables daily, as they do change. We took the train for the day from Lisbon... GO FOR IT and ask anyone, all are friendly!

We stayed appr 7-8 minutes walk from the train station, which was good. The station is very small, but they also have students there helping with the ticket machines in case of need.
