How to get to Cais do Sodre Portugal by train

Cais do Sodre is a busy and chaotic transport hub, combining a railway station, metro and ferry terminal. It is the terminus of the Lisbon–Cascais rail line, which offers spectacular coastal views and access to beaches west of the city and popular resorts such as Estoril and Oeiras. The station is also a commuter ferry terminal for routes to the nearby towns of Cacilhas, Seixal and Montijo.

The Art Deco-style Cais do Sodre railway station is classified as a Monument of Public Interest, and it was recently refurbished to include a pleasant garden space and kiosk. The riverside area is a favourite for opportunistic thieves, so take sensible precautions when walking through the area.

There are many bars and restaurants to choose from in the area, with many of them offering outdoor seating, particularly during the warmer months. One of the most popular is Timeout’s new gin bar, which is located in a converted 19th-century fish market. Other trendy spots include K Urban Beach Club, Kremlin and Plateau.

The Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga (MNAA) is a short tram or metro ride from Cais do Sodre station, and it is the country’s most visited museum. Its collection contains more works that are classed as National Treasures than any other in the country. It is a must-see for art lovers.
