The South and Southeast River Terminal, originally called South and Southeast Station, is located in the city of Lisbon, Portugal. It was built after a long period of planning, during which several proposals were submitted for its shape and location, for example it was outlined as a complete railway and river station, as part of the abandoned plan for a railway line between Santa Apolónia and Cais do Sodré. It was inaugurated on May 28, 1932, and at that time was considered an extension of trains to and from Barreiro, on the current Alentejo Line. In November 2019, the municipality started an in-depth rehabilitation plan for the marginal area next to Praça do Comércio, which included the requalification of the station building.
