This historical monument is very nice, the next trains are very well showed up on the screens. You can buy the tickets from a counter or you can use the ticket machine.

Such a pretty station and the ticket office was so decorative with tiles and architecture. Worth seeing if at the station

Station does get crowded when the tourists arrive, but when quiet, it is a pleasant little building to wonder around.

The station itself was clean, easy to navigate and beautiful. Highly recommend using the train to get around Lisbon/Sintra areas, as it's much easier and very cheap compared to driving or taking cabs/Uber.

Traveled to Sintra from Lisbon. Clean and easy to navigate the station. Used our Metro cards and returned back to Lisbon after a full day in Sintra. Trains travel back and forth hourly. Clean station, no bathrooms.

The station is a small building. It’s the only station in Sintra so your probably see it when you arrive. It could do with being cleaned up.

It is a very small station, I did not need to look myself but I would not assume that it had such facilities.
