Lisbon train station

Hello,

Traveling from Porto to Lisbon. Do trains from Porto arrive only at the Oriente Station?

Blessings,

Turbokid

As far as I can see, there are two daily trains from Porto that call at Lisboa Oriente then continue to Faro. All other trains from Porto to Lisboa call at Oriente station then terminate at Lisboa Santa Apolonia.

Just as an aside I was recently in the Lisboa Santa Apolonia train station.
There is a Metro station downstairs and it is easy to get into Lisbon proper with a connection if need be to another Metro line.
There are even buses there. And lots of taxis.

Ditto for Oriente!
Oriente has become Lisbon's Main Multimodal Transportation Center, displacing Santa Apolonia (CP) and Sete Rios (Bus), as was envisioned by the Expo'98 Task Force nearly fifteen years ago.
There's also at least one TranVia line you can catch there, a Supermarket at the Bus/Taxi Exit, and many 'fast food' outlets on the main level.
