Our train arrived at Gare do Oriente at dawn. No shops was open for business yet. I had lots of time to explore Gare do Oriente before catching our bus to Fatima.
The architecture of Gare do Oriente is like a futuristic building from the exterior. Relying quite heavily on natural lighting, the interior lighting of Gare do Oriente at dawn or even when its cloudy seems dim making the station dull looking.
The first bus to Fatima was set to leave Gare do Oreinte at 10am. Coolest and less crowded part of the station is the basement underpass to other wings of this huge station.
We arrived at Fatima just in time for check-in and also a walk to the Sanctuary. The Sanctuary at sunset was beautiful with rays of golden light onto the church.
