The railway station was built approximately 20 meters from the Entrance Gateway by architect Giuseppe Momo. The station building is composed of white marble, and its dimensions are 61 by 21.5 meters.

The construction of a railway station in Vatican City and its linkage to the Italian rail lines was guaranteed by the Lateran Treaty of 11 February 1929.
