Yes, especially the new main hall. I wished they had also substituted the main roof, it looks old fashioned.

Portugal will build five new high speed railways by 2018, including four which will connect to neighbouring Spain. Total cost amounts to €12,5bn. Construction will start 2006 and trip times from Lisbon and Oporto to Madrid will be reduced to three hours.

Although Portugal has begun the process of building brand new bullet-like high speed lines (TGV), the older ones have also been rebuilt with new, high speed trains (180km/h).

Yes, quite a bit. It gave back much more I believe, such as less fisheries and agriculture production which has lead to many bankrupt farmers. Portugal doesn't receive a fraction of what other european nations receive in agriculture finance subsidies.

Yes, that's sad! The CAP doesn't work for small farms. I have no remorse over the money from other EU members that went into building the Portugal railway network. It allowed for Calatrava's works which I greatly admire
