The Estação de Caminhos de Ferro do Rossio (Rossio station) at the Rossio square started in 1887 as the Estação Central (Central Station). The building was designed by the Portuguese architect José Luís Monteiro. A 2,600 meters long tunnel had to excavated to gain access for the trains. The station was Lisbon's main passenger terminus until 1957.
